ABSTRACT
In the last 50 years cardiopulmonary bypass has evolved dramatically, so that even the most complex heart lesions can be repaired successfully. However, we are aware that whilst survival may be excellent, organ damage, even though minor, particularly to the central nervous system is common. The next challenge in paediatric perfusion is to reduce this damage to a minimum.
