PMID:  8496764     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We describe two infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia who underwent extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and in whom the venous cannula was in the left atrium instead of the right. The routine radiograph of the chest failed to demonstrate the malposition. We recommend using the echocardiogram to confirm the position of the cannula or to guide the surgeon during the cannulation of patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
