Morbidity and mortality prediction in pediatric heart surgery: Physiological profiles and surgical complexity.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Outcome prediction for pediatric heart surgery has focused on mortality but mortality has been significantly reduced over the past 2 decades. Clinical care practices now emphasize reducing morbidity. Physiology-based profiles assessed by the Pediatric Risk of Mortality (PRISM) score are associated with new significant functional morbidity… (More)
