Pediatric Open-Heart Surgery

Open-heart surgery is a surgery performed on heart that require a patient being placed on the heart-lung bypass machine. The heart can be stopped with a solution called "cardioplegia", which is a cold, high-potassium solution and protects the heart muscle while it is stopped. The heart itself can then be opened and repair can be accomplished in a bloodless, still environment.
