Survival after cadaveric lung transplantation in recipients depended on ventilation support prior to transplantation has been reported to have relative high surgical mortality and morbidity rate. The objectives of this study were to describe the short-term outcomes of bilateral sequential lung transplantation under extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support in a consecutive series of patients who depended on noninvasive and invasive ventilation support preoperatively .
