Preschooler on ECMO after cardiac surgery with a tube in the esophagus

CXR of transesophageal echocardiogram probe
CXR AP shows an open chest with an ECMO arterial catheter tip in the aortic arch and an ECMO venous catheter tip in the right atrium. A wide-diameter tube with a sensor at the end projects over the esophagus which represents a transesophageal echocardiogram probe.

The diagnosis was a patient on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation with a mimic of a nasogastric tube.
