Some patients with severe post-cardiotomy ventricular dysfunction are unable to be separated from cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). In this setting, extracorporeal circulatory support (ECS) should be instituted to obtain eventual myocardial recovery. We present a newborn in whom an ECS was established with the oxygenator used for the surgical correction.
