Abstract
The objective of this study is to determine variables associated with four to five year functional outcomes in children undergoing complex cardiac surgery early in life. This is a longitudinal follow-up study conducted between 2000 and 2005, consisting of 165 survivors of complex cardiac surgery at the age of 6 weeks or younger at the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton. When children were four to five years of age, parents completed the Adaptive Behavioral Assessment System (ABAS) II. The study focuses on the following four outcomes: General Adaptive Composite of ABAS, and three broad categories of the children’s assessed adaptation in Conceptual, Social and Practical domains. Multivariate linear regression analysis revealed pre-operative plasma lactate, gender and mother’s education were significantly associated with all of the four outcomes in the study. The number of days ventilated was significantly associated with the Conceptual domain. Single Ventricle was associated with the Practical domain.
