  • Cardiomyopathy and heart failure in children: anesthetic implications PEDIATRIC ANESTHESIA Rosenthal, D. N., Hammer, G. B. 2011; 21 (5): 577-584


    The purpose of this article is to provide a brief but systematic overview of heart failure and cardiomyopathy in children and the anesthetic management of these patients. We will begin with disease definitions and descriptions of the disorders. Our review will include the epidemiology and etiology of the more prevalent underlying causes of heart failure, the principal pathophysiology of the specific cardiomyopathies, as well as the common therapies in use today in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Important implications for anesthetic management will be highlighted.
