In this case, the nursing care of a 39-year-old female patient who was operated due to pulmonary artery aneurysm and left main coronary artery stenosis and who underwent extracorporeal membrane oxygenation was discussed. It is thought that qualified and comprehensive nursing care is important in increasing the success of the treatment and reducing the mortality and morbidity rates in the patient who underwent extracorporeal membrane oxygenation after pulmonary artery aneurysm and coronary artery bypass surgery with high mortality.
