Veno-Venosus-ECMO (vv-ECMO) represents a life support treatment in patients with an acute respiratory failure. The association between H1N1 and ECMO is reported. However, the correlation between vv-ECMO with post-operative acute respiratory failure, following aortic dissection was not found. So, we describe a double novel finding: a post-operative ARDS, after aortic dissection, treated with vv-ECMO in a patient with H1N1 infection.
