New Publication: Neurological Complications of the Lower Extremities After Femoral Cannulated Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation: A Systematic Review

Published on February 20, 2024

Femoral cannulated extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been associated with neurologic complications in the lower extremity ipsilateral to the cannulation. There is uncertainty about the prevalence of these complications and their mechanisms of development.
Aim of this systematic review was to investigate the prevalence of neurological complications after ECMO and to describe possible underlying mechanisms.
