Abstract

Iatrogenic tracheal injuries are rare but potentially serious complications of endotracheal intubation that frequently require lung isolation to repair. This is not tolerated in patients with severe respiratory failure. We describe a case in a patient with acute respiratory distress syndrome, repaired using veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.
