Abstract

The successful early repair of congenital heart disease has placed the focus on the long-term outcome for surviving patients. This article reviews the neurologic risks of cardiopulmonary bypass, deep hypothermia, and circulatory arrest. Potential neurologic and developmental sequelae in both the immediate postoperative period and the long term are discussed, with a review of current, research-based literature.
