Extracorporeal circulation could be effective for cardiac resuscitation in patients who do not respond to “Advanced cardiac life support” (ACLS), but cannot guarantee brain survival. A case of successful cardiac and cerebral resuscitation with extracorporeal circulation and mild hypothermia, in a 48 year-old man with cardiac arrest due to cardiac tamponade, is reported. The good long term neurologic outcome of the patient is also described.
