Posttraumatic adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) still involves significant mortality, despite progress in management concepts. Current therapeutic strategies are briefly described, including kinetic therapy, high-frequency jet ventilation and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. In addition, a spectacular case of the first successful lung transplantation for posttraumatic ARDS after failed ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) support is reported. This young man with severe posttraumatic ARDS developed a potentially lethal bilateral pulmonary hemorrhage under treatment with ECMO, and on the basis of this bilateral pulmonary transplantation was considered to be indicated. The patient is alive and well 2 years after the procedure.
