The purpose

Bleeding complications and thromboembolic complications are frequent during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). Retrospective data suggest that platelet inhibition using prostaglandins, in this case PGE1, may reduce thromboembolic complications without increasing the bleeding risk. This randomized, double-blind trial aims to investigate the effects of PGE1 on bleeding risk, thromboembolic complications and the function of the ECMO.

Provided treatments
