Abstract

We report the case of a 5-year-old boy who suffered from an intracardiac air influx with suspected cerebral air embolism during the Fontan procedure. We immediately transformed the cardiopulmonary bypass circuit to perform a retrograde cerebral perfusion, which resulted in successful neuroprotection. He was extubated in the operating room without any neurological defects.


Keywords:
