Poster Information
Abstract: Mr. X is a 30 year-old male weighing 64kg with a past medical history of single ventricle physiology, pulmonary hypertension, permanent pacemaker, horseshoe kidney in ESRD, and gout. He is currently under consideration for heart-liver-kidney transplant. Notably, two other referral centers did not feel he was an appropriate candidate for this transplant surgery given his complex history and anatomy. His cardiac history includes a Fontan repair (see below). Baseline SpO2 is 84% on room air. LVEF was 40% on TTE a week prior to surgery. Mr. X presents for a laparoscopic peritoneal dialysis catheter.Summary: Adult congenital heart disease is one of the fastest growing areas in adult cardiovascular medicine. Adults now outnumber children with CHD, accounting for 66% of the overall CHD population, and 60% of those with severe CHD. Surveys show that knowledge and comfort with adult CHD is low among anesthesiologists, even at specialized centers. Becoming familiar with management of adult CHD patients may greatly influence their outcomes, both perioperatively and long term.References: 1.
