Mayo Clinic study: multiple surgeries and anesthesia exposure
Date:10/2/2011

anesthesiologist and lead author of the study. "In general, this study should not alter decision-making related to surgery in young children. We do not yet have sufficient information to prompt a change in practice and want to avoid problems that may occur as a result of delaying needed procedures. For example, delaying ear surgery for children with repeated ear infections might cause hearing problems that could create learning difficulties later in school."

This study, funded by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, examines the same population data used in a 2009 study by Mayo Clinic researchers, which reviewed records for children under age 4 and was published in the medical journal Anesthesiology.

The 2009 Mayo Clinic study was the first complete study in humans to suggest that exposure of children to anesthesia might affect development of the brain. Several previous studies suggested that anesthetic drugs might cause abnormalities in the brains of young animals. The study released today is significant because it examines children experiencing anesthesia and surgeries under age 2 and removes factors associated with existing health issues.
