Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Thrombocytopenia can be a real challenge during cardiac surgery in children with cyanotic congenital heart disease. This report describes a 7-year-old girl with d-transposition of the great arteries, ventricular septal defect, pulmonary hypertension, chronic thrombocytopenia, polycythemia, and chronic renal impairment. The thrombocytopenia improved several days after splenectomy. The child then underwent a successful arterial switch operation with ventricular septal defect closure.
