Ischemia and compartment syndrome may be seen, especially in the distal limb, after femora-femoral cannulation for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). Several techniques have been used to decrease the rate of complications. Arterial hypoxemia may be prevented by reperfusion with distal limb. Prophylactic superficial femoral artery cannulation results in ease in operation and prevents perfusion. In the present case, we present prophylactic superficial femoral artery cannulation for limb reperfusion.
