Post Balloon atrioseptostomy collapse/hypotension

Recommended Posts

Can anyone please explain pathophysiological mechanism of changes in cardiovascular system after balloon atrioseptostomy in children with TGA?

I commonly observe that these babies require large volume of fluids, including boluses to maintain proper cardiovascular performance immediately after the procedure. They are often very responsive to rapid fluid administration even though the intracardiac volemia seems adequate.
