Postoperative bleeding is a common complication after pediatric cardiac surgery. Use of recombinant activated factor VII for intractable hemorrhage after cardiac, pediatric, and neurosurgery has been shown to decrease postoperative bleeding, but data in children are limited. This retrospective study analyzed 20 children <15 years-old who underwent cardiac surgery and received recombinant activated factor VII for refractory postoperative hemorrhage. All patients underwent mediastinal… CONTINUE READING
