OBJECTIVE: Cardiac surgery for repair of congenital heart defects poses unique hazards to the developing brain. Deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (DHCA) is a simple and effective method for facilitating a bloodless surgical field during congenital heart defect repair. There are, however, some concerns that prolonged DHCA increases the risk of nervous system injury. The electroencephalogram (EEG) is used in adult and, to a lesser extent, pediatric cardiac procedures as a neuromonitoring method...

BACKGROUND: Magnetic resonance (MRI) scanning of the heart is an established part of the investigation of cardiovascular conditions in children. In young children, sedation is likely to be needed, and multiple controlled periods of apnea are often required to allow image acquisition. Suppression of spontaneous ventilation is possible with remifentanil; however, the dose required is uncertain. AIMS: To establish the dose of remifentanil, by infusion, required to suppress ventilation sufficiently to allow a 30-s apnea during MRI imaging of the heart...

Von Willebrand disease (VWD) is the most common bleeding disorder and reportedly affects 1:1,000 of the world's population. There are three subtypes of VWD characterized by a quantitative defect (types 1 and 3 VWD) or a qualitative defect (type 2 VWD). Type 1 VWD results in a partial deficiency of von Willebrand factor (VWF) and affects approximately 75% of individuals with VWD, whereas type 3 VWD results in a severe or complete deficiency of VWF. Individuals with type 2 VWD subtypes (types 2A, 2B, 2M, and 2N VWD) express a dysfunctional VWF protein that has impaired interactions with platelets or factor VIII...

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) can lead to progressive heart failure with high morbidity and mortality. Cardiac catheterization (CC) is the gold standard for diagnosis and response to vasodilatory medications. The invasive nature of CC and associated anesthesia predispose this patient population to adverse events including death. Catheterization records were queried from 1/1/2011 to 10/31/2016. Patients with PH, defined as pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) greater than 3 WU m2 , pulmonary artery pressure above 20 mmHg, and pulmonary wedge pressure less than or equal to 15 mmHg, who underwent hemodynamic CC were included in this retrospective study...

Tetrology of Fallot's (TOF) is the most common cause of cyanotic congenital heart disease, and accounts for 10% of all congenital heart diseases. Right to left shunting and hyperviscosity of blood predisposes these patients to brain abscess. Perioperative management of these patients with uncorrected TOF for noncardiac surgery is a challenge for the anesthesiologists owing to the long-term effects of hypoxia and decreased pulmonary blood flow, resulting in considerable modification of the physiology and neurological complications...

With advances in the development of surgical and medical treatments for congenital heart disease (CHD), the population of children and adults with CHD is growing. This population requires multiple surgical and diagnostic imaging procedures. Therefore, general anesthesia is inevitable. In many studies, it has been reported that children with CHD have increased anesthesia risks when undergoing noncardiac surgeries compared to children without CHD. The highest risk group included patients with functional single ventricle, suprasystemic pulmonary hypertension, left ventricular outflow obstruction, and cardiomyopathy...
