A Predictive Model for Neurodevelopmental Outcome After the Norwood Procedure
Pediatric Cardiology, 08/17/2012
Mahle WT et al. – This model of variables from the Norwood hospitalization can help to identify infants at risk for neurodevelopmental impairment. However, given the overall high prevalence of neurodevelopmental impairment and the fact that nearly one third of severely affected children would not have been identified by these risk factors, close surveillance and assessment for early intervention services are warranted for all infants after the Norwood procedure.
