Abstract

Objective: The aim of study was to evaluate the heart rate variability (HRV) changes in children operated on for congenital heart disease (CHD), and specifically in those who had an atriotomy, comparing them to a control group.
Methods and results: HRV was measured in 54 young children (28 male/26 female) who underwent surgery for CHD, as well as in 51 children in a control group. The low-/high-frequency ratio was the only significantly increased parameter (1.8 +/– 1.39 versus 1.25 +/– 0.88; p=0.01) in the group of children operated on. We also studied the effect of an atriotomy on HRV. There was no statistically significant difference in this group.
Conclusion: HRV is decreased in children after surgery for CHD compared to the control group, but atriotomy does not seem to play a direct role in this modification.
