Reduction of brain volumes after neonatal cardiopulmonary bypass surgery in single ventricle congenital heart disease prior to Fontan completion.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Little is known about the relationship between brain volumes and neurodevelopmental outcome at two years of age in children with single ventricle congenital heart disease (CHD). We hypothesized that reduced brain volumes may be associated with adverse neurodevelopmental outcome. METHODS Volumetric segmentation of cerebral MRI scans was done in… (More)
