We were interested to read the study by Schneuer et al looking at whether anesthesia in young children impacts on subsequent developmental assessment or school performance, and applaud their efforts to further examine what is a very important question for anesthetists, surgeons and parents. We feel that the study adds to the growing body of evidence that unnecessary multiple or prolonged general anesthetics should be avoided in early life.
