Purpose

Heparin is frequently used in central venous catheters (CVCs) in post-operative cardiac patients. It remains unclear if a heparin infusion, compared to a normal saline infusion, prevents thrombosis of CVCs after surgery. This study will answer the question: does a low-dose heparin infusion (10 units/kg/h) prevent thrombosis, compared to a normal saline infusion, in patients less than one year of age after cardiac surgery?
