Abstract

We describe two cases of refractory ventricular fibrillation complicating transcatheter interventional procedures. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation was used in each to support percutaneous coronary revascularization in the fibrillating heart as a means of facilitating successful restoration of sinus rhythm.
