Intraoperative pulmonary thromboembolism is a high mortality situation. Early mortality in patients with pulmonary thromboembolism varies from 2% in normotensive patients to 30% in patients with cardiogenic shock. The use of extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation can improve survival and neurologic outcomes of cardiac arrest. We report a case of intraoperative massive pulmonary thromboembolism with circulatory collapse and cardiac arrest during anesthesia for pelvic bone fracture surgery, which were rescued by extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.
