Abstract

Establishing and maintaining arterial access in pediatric cardiac operations is a frequent and sometimes frustrating problem. We have modified a procedure commonly used in our research laboratory for arterial pressure monitoring and applied it successfully to the pediatric cardiac surgical patient. The internal mammary artery can provide reliable arterial access in the postoperative period.
