Thrombotic complications accompany surgical treatment, especially in children. Thrombosis is one of the actual problems of pediatrics. This problem is associated with severe complications, serious health problems in infant. This can contribute to increases of mortality in children with congenital heart diseases (CHD). In this article we discuss some aspects of thrombosis in the postoperative period of CHD in children with cardio-pulmonary bypass (CPB). Current research shows us the parameters of plasma hemostasis which can be used as predictors of thrombotic compli-cations in the postoperative period in children. According to our results, fibrin monomer and von Willebrand factor may be recommended for use as predictors of thrombosis in children with CHD.
