Early experience of pump-controlled retrograde trial off for weaning from veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA ECMO) in adult patients with cardiogenic shock. Pump-controlled retrograde trial off has recently been introduced as an effective method for weaning from veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in pediatric patients. However, studies on pump-controlled retrograde trial off in adults are still lacking. Thus, this study aimed to examine the outcomes of pump-controlled retrograde trial off for weaning from veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in adult patients.
