Ji Young Kim, Yu Rim Shin, Hae Keum Kil, Mi Ran Park, Jong Wha Lee
BACKGROUND Rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM®) is a point-of-care test for coagulation, enabling physicians to make a swift decision. The aim of this investigation was to establish reference intervals of thromboelastometric evaluation for coagulation in pediatric patients with congenital heart diseases (CHD). MATERIAL AND METHODS As baseline data, 3 assays of ROTEM® (INTEM, EXTEM, and FIBTEM) were measured after anesthesia induction. ROTEM® parameters were clotting time (CT), amplitude at 10 min (A10), clot formation time (CFT), a angle, maximal clot firmness (MCF), clot lysis index at 60 min (LI60), and maximal clot elasticity (MCE)...

BACKGROUND: Conduct of stable inhalational anesthetic induction in children with congenital heart disease (CHD) presents special challenges. It requires in-depth understanding of the effect of congenital shunt lesions on the uptake, delivery, and equilibration of anesthetic drugs. Intracardiac shunts can alter the induction time and if delivery of anesthetic agent is not carefully titrated, can lead to overdosing and undesirable myocardial depression. AIMS: To study the effect of congenital shunt lesions on the speed of inhalational induction and also the impact of inhalational induction on hemodynamics in the presence of congenital shunt lesions...

As physicians and caregivers of children with congenital heart disease, we are aware of the increasing need for procedures requiring anesthesia. While these procedures may be ideal for medical and cardiac surgical management, the risks and benefits must be assessed carefully. There are well known risks of cardiovascular and respiratory complications from anesthesia and sedation and a potentially under-appreciated risk of neurocognitive dysfunction. Both animal and human studies support the detrimental effects of repeated anesthetic exposure on the developing brain...

Unfortunately, last years there are more and more children with multiple malformations. Often in the intensive care unit appears children with problems requiring urgent surgical intervention. Congenital heart diseases (CHD) are often accompanying pathology. There are specific changes in hemodynamics in this category of children, which influence parameters of mechanical ventilation, leading sometimes to extremely undesirable consequences. Accordingly, this review deals with the features of anesthesia for various surgical interventions in children with severe (often uncorrected) accompanying CHD...

BACKGROUND: Dexmedetomidine is a selective α-2 receptor agonist with a sedative and cardiopulmonary profile that makes it an attractive anesthetic for pediatric patients with congenital heart disease (CHD). Although several smaller, single-center studies suggest that dexmedetomidine use is gaining traction in the perioperative setting in children with CHD, there are limited multicenter data, with little understanding of the variation in use across age ranges, procedural complexity, and centers...

BACKGROUND: Children with congenital heart disease are at increased risk of abnormal neurodevelopment (ND). Demographic and perioperative physiologic factors have both been associated with developmental outcome. The acute physiologic effect of a surgical procedure, anesthesia, and hospitalization may offset any potential advantage gained from anatomic correction and circulatory palliation. The specific risk/benefit balance on ND outcome of the insult of the operation, offset by the benefit of improved anatomy and physiology, has not been addressed...

BACKGROUND: Premedication is required for reducing anxiety and child's struggling against mask acceptance on anesthesia in pediatric surgery for congenital heart disease. Midazolam has been widely used for this purpose, but because of its side effects, finding an effective replacement with less complication is necessary. OBJECTIVES: In the present study, we compared the efficacy of oral midazolam versus dexmedetomidine in terms of anxiolysis and mask acceptance behavior...

Congenital pulmonary vein stenosis (CPVS) is a rare fetal congenital heart disease with a prevalence of 1.7 per 100,000 children younger than two years of age. Because of the difficulty of maintaining the pulmonary blood flow, CPVS is associated with a 50% survival rate within five years of diagnosis. We describe a successful management of pulmonary blood flow for a 4-month-old-girl with CPVS, combined with atrial septal defect and ventricular septal defect, undergoing pulmonary vein obstruction release (PVOR)...

BACKGROUND: In this pilot study, we hypothesized that velocity parameters obtained from changes in clot amplitude (A) and clot elasticity (E) measured with thromboelastometry (ROTEM, Tem International GmbH, Munich, Germany) could improve detection of fibrinolysis in whole blood obtained from children undergoing surgery for congenital heart disease. METHODS: Whole blood samples were obtained after induction of general anesthesia. Seven conditions were studied: native whole blood (baseline) and samples with progressive tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) concentrations (102, 255, 512, 1024, 1535, and 2539 units/mL)...

We assessed an in-vitro model of hyperfibrinolysis using rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM) by the addition of increasing concentrations of tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) on whole blood obtained from children undergoing cardiac surgery. We assessed the relevance of this model by repeating the tests in the same population after tranexamic acid (TXA) infusion. In addition, we determined the sensitivity and specificity of ROTEM parameters to detect the different degrees of fibrinolysis. Blood samples obtained from 20 children were analyzed at two predefined timepoints: after induction of anesthesia, before TXA (baseline), and at the end of surgery during TXA infusion (end surgery)...

Improvement in surgical techniques, anesthesia, and perioperative care has resulted in the majority of children born with congenital heart defects surviving into adulthood with a normal or near-normal quality of life. A careful transition from pediatric to adult care providers is important to avoid issues related to loss of continuity of care and any undue financial or psychological burdens to the patients and their families. The patients, their families, and the health care providers are faced with many challenges during this transition process that can be optimized and overcome by education about the heart defects and a team approach with clear lines of communication...

Congenital cardiac anesthesiology is a rapidly expanding field at both ends of the life spectrum. The care of the unborn child with congenital heart disease is becoming highly specialized in regional centers that offer advanced imaging techniques, coordinated specialist care, and potentially fetal interventions. As more children with congenital heart disease survive to adulthood, patients and their health care providers are facing new challenges. The growing volume of publications reflects this expanding field of congenital cardiac anesthesiology...

We hypothesized that postoperative sedation with dexmedetomidine/fentanyl would be effective in infants and neonates with congenital heart disease and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Children who were <36 months of age, had congenital heart disease with PAH, and had been treated at our hospital between October 2011 and April 2013 (n = 187) were included in this retrospective study. Either dexmedetomidine/fentanyl (Group Dex) or midazolam/fentanyl (Group Mid) was used for postoperative sedation. The main outcome variables included delirium scores, supplemental sedative/analgesic drugs, ventilator use, and sedation time...
