Abstract

The neurodevelopmental outcome of hypoplastic left heart syndrome in infants remains unclear. All 11 survivors of staged surgical repair of hypoplastic left heart syndrome received standardized neurodevelopmental assessments at one regional children's hospital. Seven children (64%) had major developmental disabilities. Quality-of-life outcomes must be considered when management options for children with hypoplastic left heart syndrome are evaluated.
