Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been increasingly used in the treatment of refractory cardiac arrest and postarrest cardiogenic shock. We propose a technique for percutaneous decannulation of femoral venoarterial ECMO cannulas by using the MANTA vascular closure device, designed to close large-bore arteriotomies. This technique significantly simplifies the decannulation and might diminish the potential complications caused by the standard surgical removal.
