This is the first report of the use of veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in a neonate with severe Ebstein俟Q製 anomaly. The report suggests the use of veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in the immediate neonatal period may be a useful therapy in severe Ebstein俟Q製 anomaly. By providing adequate oxygenation independent of the patient俟Q製 native pulmonary blood flow, veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation allows the pulmonary vascular resistance to decrease and may promote right ventricular recovery.
