Objective/Aim:  To compare hemodynamic parameters in infants with congenital heart disease (CHD) undergoing noncardiac surgery (NCS) under awake spinal anesthesia (SA) with controls without CHD also undergoing SA. 
Perioperative Pain Management in Patients with Congenital Heart Disease
TLDR
There are distinct pathophysiologic mechanisms that distinguish this pain from acute postoperative pain, and proper management requires recognition and possible referral to a multidisciplinary pain clinic.
Spinal Anesthesia for Noncardiac Surgery in High-Risk Infants With Corrected Tetralogy of Fallot and Cardiomyopathy
TLDR
An experienced anesthesiologist (more than 500 pediatric spinal blocks) performed a lumbar puncture at the L4-L5 interspace with a disposable 25G × 90 mm Quincke spinal needle, which revealed that the myocardial performance index from the lateral tricuspid annulus of the right ventricle was 0.54.
IAPA Advisory on Anaesthetic Management of the Neonate with Congenital Heart Disease for Non-Cardiac Surgery
TLDR
The focus of this review is on how to identify neonates with congenital heart disease scheduled for noncardiac surgery and plan appropriate and safe anaesthesia techniques for them.
Anaesthetic considerations in children with congenital heart disease undergoing non-cardiac surgery
TLDR
Issues on how to tailor perioperative anaesthetic management on cases with left to right shunt, right to left shunt and complex heart disease are discussed in this article.
Anesthesia for the patient with congenital heart disease presenting for noncardiac surgery
TLDR
The identification of high-risk patients, multidisciplinary decision-making and planning and careful anesthetic management and monitoring are critical for optimizing outcomes in children with congenital heart disease presenting for noncardiac procedures.
Spinal Anesthesia for Urologic Surgery in an Infant With Palliated Single Ventricle Physiology
TLDR
The use of spinal anesthesia is presented during urologic surgery in a 19-month-old boy with hypoplastic left heart syndrome who had undergone surgical palliation and potential hemodynamic consequences are presented.

TLDR
This review focuses on the key principles of anatomy and physiology of right-to-left shunt lesions, as applicable to the safe anesthetic care for these complex patients.

TLDR
Careful preoperative evaluation, experienced anesthesiologists, suitable anesthetic agents and techniques, and the liberal use of invasive monitoring are integral parts of safe and effective anesthetic care in children with congenital heart disease.

TLDR
A narrative review aims to present the evidence concerning a range of anesthetic techniques, the long‐term complications of congenital heart disease and suggest a physiological and evidence‐based approach to managing these children.

TLDR
The frequency of perioperative complications in children and adults who have congenital heart disease and undergo noncardiac surgical procedures and anesthesia is low and patients who have pulmonary hypertension, congestive heart failure, or cyanosis and children with congenitalHeart disease who are younger than 2 years of age have an increased frequency ofPerioperative morbidity.
