Conclusion

Acute rises in PAP are increasingly recognised as a cause of deteriorating condition and even death in children with abnormally reactive pulmonary vasculature secondary to CHD. With increased awareness of the problem, we can identify patients at risk preoperatively so that with careful monitoring and management these rises may be prevented or at least kept at reasonable levels.
