OBJECTIVE The occurrence of an electroencephalographic (EEG) seizure after surgery for complex congenital heart defects has been associated with worse neurodevelopmental (ND) outcomes. We previously identified postoperative seizures documented by 48-hour EEG monitoring in 11% of 178 neonates and infants. Evaluation at 1 year of age did not identify an adverse effect of an EEG seizure on ND outcomes. The current study was undertaken to determine if testing in the preschool period would identify… CONTINUE READING
