Abstract

Objective: The determination of postoperative course after cardiac surgery has always been a challenging issue. It is more sophisticated in the pediatric age group. The aim of this investigation was to identify whether increased concentrations of lactate in arterial blood has a predictive value for postoperative morbidity and mortality after heart surgery.
