Abstract

Neurologic injury in patients with congenital heart disease remains an important source of morbidity and mortality. Advances in surgical repair and periopcrative management have resulted in longer life expectancies for these patients. Current practice and research must focus on identifying treatable risk factors for neurocognitive dysfunction, advancing methods for perioperative neuromonitoring, and refining treatment and care of the congenital heart patient with potential neurologic injury. Techniques for neuromonitoring and future directions will be discussed.
