The aim of this study is to report our experience with diagnosis and management of cerebral salt wasting (CSW) in children and to evaluate the role of atrial natriuretic peptide/brain natriuretic peptide (ANP/BNP) in pediatric patients. We present nine children suffering from prevalent cerebral disease—seven of whom underwent anesthesia and surgical procedures—with features of CSW, seen within a 22-month period. The symptoms, patient characteristics (including hormone status), monitoring… CONTINUE READING
