Left single lung transplantation was performed under perioperative extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support for a patient of primary pulmonary hypertension. Continuous ECMO in this patient for one day after the transplantation decreased the pulmonary blood flow and probably served to minimize the potential complication of reperfusion edema of the graft. During this period, the ECMO was gradually weaned so that the grafted lung could adapt itself to the gradually increased blood flow through it. The patient was extubated without difficulty 2 days alter the removal of ECMO and made a smooth recovery.
