Veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (vvECMO) conventionally requires the cannulation of two vessels. Here we report our initial experience with the "Wang-Zwische" (WZ) double-lumen cannula.In a group of n = 36 patients single venous cannulation for vvECMO was performed. A retrospective analysis was executed. A comparison of flow characteristics to standard two-vessel cannulation was performed. Mean age of the patient population was 48 ± 15 years (body mass index [BMI] 32 ± 13 kg/m). In n = 32 patients (89%) the cannula was implanted percutaneously under echo or fluoroscopic guidance in less than 30 minutes. Nine patients were partially mobilized on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support. Oxygenation (partial arterial oxygen tension [PaO2]/fraction of inspired oxygen [FiO2]) improved significantly in all patients from 66 mm Hg (interquartile range [IQR] 58-87 mm Hg) before ECMO to 117 mm Hg (IQR 95-195 mm Hg, p = 0.001) after 24 hours. In seven patients (19%) nonfatal adverse events occurred, including three dislocations, two partial cannula thrombosis, one ventricular perforation, and one retroperitoneal hemorrhage. The negative pressures for drainage at a flow of 2.5 L/min were significantly lower in a standard (S) two-vessel approach compared with a WZ approach (S: -9 mm Hg; IQR -3 to -24 mm Hg, vs. WZ: -23 mm Hg; IQR -4 to -40 mm Hg; p = 0.04). The WZ cannula offers sufficient gas exchange in addition to certain advantages over standard cannulation, including facilitated cannulation in selected patients and improved mobilization.
