We recently reported that in children between 4 and 12 years of age, suffering from congenital heart disease and undergoing cardiac catheterization, combining xenon with sevoflurane was safe and feasible.(1) In this population, after induction of anaesthesia with propofol-fentanyl-rocuronium, standardized anaesthesia maintained with sevoflurane titrated to a BIS-value of 40-60 (mean 2.04 vol-% [IQR 1.80-2.22]) resulted in short-lasting neurocognitive deficits when compared to a non-randomized group of healthy control children matched for age and gender.
