MENDOZA-SANCHEZ, Viviana et al. Neurodevelopment in children with congenital heart disease at 30 months of age. Rev. mex. pediatr. [online]. 2019, vol.86, n.4, pp.143-146.  Epub Oct 02, 2020. ISSN 0035-0052.


To describe the neurodevelopmental status of patients with complex congenital heart disease (CCHD), who underwent cardiac surgery in the neonatal period.

Material and methods:

Through a longitudinal, observational and retrospective study, we included 14 patients. Neurodevelopment was assessed through the Bayley II child development scale, at the age of 30 months.


The average age at the time of surgery was 19 days. The most frequent heart disease was aortic coarctation (43%). Of the total, 29% had low cognitive development, and 50% with abnormal psychomotor development.


Pediatric patients with CCHD after surgery have a high risk of presenting neurological deficit, predominantly in the psychomotor area.

Keywords : Neurodevelopment; congenital heart disease; neurological deficit.
