ABSTRACT
Children and particularly neonates present unique challenges during CPB. Patient age, size, underlying anatomy and surgical strategy influence the perfusion techniques and the construction of the CPB circuit. The normal changes in physiology in the first weeks of life impact upon surgical technique and outcome of repair. Limited surgical access necessitates alternative cannulation strategies. Deep hypothermia, low flow CPB and circulatory arrest are frequently used. An understanding of the related pathophysiology is therefore required to make the correct choices and to optimise patient outcome.
