The Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Inquest Report



The results up to that time

Giddins's appreciation of the Terziski case aside, there was good reason to feel that the program was experiencing poor results up to that time. According to the records of the Variety Children's Heart Centre (Exhibit 62), from the time of Odim's arrival to the death of Daniel Terziski, Odim had operated on 18 children. Of those, nine underwent relatively minor closed procedures, and nine underwent open procedures where the CPB machine had been used. Of the nine in that second group of children, four had died.
