Abstract

We describe massive thrombus formation completely occluding an aortic bioprosthesis in a patient with venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and apical venting. The thrombus was surgically removed and the patient recovered with no complications. Timely identification and immediate surgical removal of thrombi may allow patient recovery with no severe complications.
