Urinary liver-type fatty acid-binding protein: A hemodynamic index during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation

Clin Case Rep. 2022 Nov 6;10(11):e6531. doi: 10.1002/ccr3.6531. eCollection 2022 Nov.


We discuss a case in which urinary L-FABP measurements were used to manage a 46-year-old male patient receiving V-A ECMO support. His mean blood pressure was ≥75 mmHg for the first 24 h after the initiation of V-A ECMO, and he experienced a rapid decrease in urinary L-FABP levels.

Keywords: circulation index; extracorporeal membrane oxygenation; lactate; liver‐type fatty acid‐binding protein.
