Pediheart Podcast Episode #80 Replay: Timing Of The Arterial Switch Operation And Impact On Brain Growth and Function

In this replay of episode 80 from 2019, we review a study from The University of Toronto on the impact of timing of the arterial switch operation for DTGA on brain growth and neurodevelopmental outcomes. Can the timing of this surgery impact these outcomes? What is the reason for this? Is it rational to perform this surgery early to improve neurological outcomes? How important is the conduct in the OR versus the ICU? These are amongst the questions we address with Professor Jane Newburger of Harvard University - Boston Children's Hospital this week! doi: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.118.037495
