Because ECMO is considered to be only a temporary measure, his doctors, led by cardiac surgeon Peter Wearden, MD, Ph.D, requested and received approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to place Ethan on the Berlin Heart.  
The Berlin Heart is a pediatric heart assist device that has been used with success in Europe but is still considered experimental in the United States. Dr. Wearden and his team at Children's are among a handful of physicians in the country who have undergone special training to implant the device in children as young as Ethan and must get FDA approval for each procedure. 
Ethan started showing signs of improvement and Dr. Wearden ordered another cardiac catheterization.
