Thromboembolic events in the reperfusion line and in the inferior limb are well known on patients undergoing veno-arterial ECLS. In our group, we also could observe these incidents. We described a method which consist in connect the heparin perfusion directly in the reperfusion limb line using the three way stopcock of the introducer used for the limb reperfusion. We routinely administer, the habitual heparin dose needed for the ECLS maintenance in the reperfusion limb line instead through a conventional venous access. Since we use this method we had observed a significant decrease in complications like clots in the reperfusion limb line and ischemic signs on patients limbs. We had not needed extra heparin doses to reach anticoagulation levels. No other complications had been observed.
