Abstract: BACKGROUND Comprehensive information regarding causes of late post-operative death following pediatric congenital cardiac surgery is lacking. OBJECTIVES The study sought to analyze late causes of death after congenital cardiac surgery by era and defect severity. METHODS We obtained data from a nationwide pediatric cardiac surgery database and Finnish population registry regarding patients who underwent cardiac surgery at RESULTS Overall, 10,964 patients underwent 14,079 operations, with 98% follow-up. Early mortality ( CONCLUSIONS CHD-related deaths have decreased markedly but remain a challenge after surgery for severe cardiac defects. Premature deaths are generally more common among patients than the control population, warranting long-term follow-up after congenital cardiac surgery.
