Take Home Points:

 

  • Survivors after ECMO support following a Norwood procedure demonstrate similar functional and quality of life outcomes as Norwood patients who do not require ECMO support.
  • Patients with single ventricle physiology demonstrate lower scores in these categories when compared to normal populations.

 

 

jeremy-herrmannCommentary from Dr. Jeremy Herrmann (Indianapolis), section editor of Congenital Heart Surgery Journal Watch:  While it is well understood that neonates who require ECMO support after a Norwood procedure have overall worse outcomes than those who did not, what is less well understood is how survivors after ECMO support fare in the intermediate term. The authors now offer insight into the functional performance of these patients. Using a previous prospectively collected patient cohort followed up to 7-8 years, they compared surviving patients who required ECMO support after the Norwood proceed with age-matched control patients who underwent a Norwood procedure without ECMO support. Validated inventories were used to assess functional status and quality of life. Interestingly, of all the items used to compare the ECMO and non-ECMO patients, the only difference was a lower perceived physical appearance score in the ECMO group. Consistent with other previous reports, both groups scored lower in functional status and quality than a healthy population. The authors conclude that patients who require ECMO support after a Norwood procedure and survive fare as well as those who do not require ECMO support in terms of functional status and quality of life. While the sample sizes of the present study are small, these findings may facilitate patient family counseling and provide a foundation for larger, longer-term studies evaluating these important outcomes in a very challenging patient population.

Variation in extubation failure rates after neonatal congenital heart surgery across Pediatric Cardiac Critical Care Consortium hospitals.

Take Home Points:

 

  • Extubation failure occurs in 11% of neonates recovering from cardiac surgery
  • Airway anomalies are an independent risk factor for extubation failure
  • Wide variation in extubation failure rates exists across cardiac ICUs

 

 

Commentary from Dr. Jeremy Herrmann (Indianapolis), section editor of Congenital Heart Surgery Journal Watch:  This study is one of the latest to arise from the Pediatric Critical Care Consortium (PC4) database which is comprised of 14 centers that voluntarily submit clinical registry data for cardiac patients cared for in a cardiac ICU. The authors examined extubation failure (reintubation within 72 hours of first planned extubation) for 899 neonates who underwent cardiac surgical procedures. Extubation failure occurred in 11% of all cases. An extensive list of patient-related and perioperative variables was examined. Multivariable analysis revealed only the presence of an airway disorder to be associated with extubation failure even when failure occurred early (<24 hours) or later (24-72 hours). Patients who suffered early extubation failure were more likely to have longer ICU and hospital lengths of stay as well as higher in-hospital mortality. Additionally, there was a wide range of extubation failure rates across centers with two centers registering significantly higher than the average rate (5-22%; Figure 1). The authors reason that this method of cross-institutional reporting may facilitate adoption or transference of best-practices, especially when outliers are identified. The major limitations of this study are the typical limitations of any database-centered project, though the careful entry and validation of data in the PC4 database are certainly strengths of the program. It will be interesting to observe what additional practice pattern variations are identified through PC4 as the program continues to accrue more programs and enrolled patients.
