Abstract

Authors’ conclusions: a single brief general inhaled anesthesia in infants does not alter neurodevelopment outcomes at 5 years of age, compared with awake-regional anesthesia, in a predominantly male population.

Reviewers’ commentary: the use of single inhalation anesthesia seems safe, in terms of neurodevelopment in children, without having yet a definitive response to other circumstances, such as the use of multiple anesthetics or repeated exposures.
