dc.description.abstractAim: Formulas for empirical body surface area (BSA), which is used to estimate body size and standardise physiological parameters, may disagree in children. We compared six commonly used BSA formulas-Du Bois, Boyd, Costeff, Haycock, Meban and Mosteller-in a surgical cohort. Methods: This retrospective single-centre cohort study comprised 68 children who had corrective heart surgery at Skåne University Children's Hospital, Lund, Sweden, from February 2010 to March 2017. Results: The children (51% female) underwent surgery at a mean weight of 7.0 kilograms (range 2.7-14.1 kg) and a mean age 11 months (range 0-43 months). All the BSA formulas showed good correlation with mean BSA, but there were considerable variations between them. Mosteller's formula was exactly the same as the mean BSA (bias 0.000). The Du Bois and Boyd formulas had the largest mean BSA deviations (bias -0.012 and 0.015). Costeff's formula showed good agreement with mean BSA, Haycock's formula showed minimal overestimation and Meban's formula demonstrated a systemic error in older children. Conclusion: Commonly used BSA formulas did not agree in young children undergoing heart surgery, but they were all close to the overall mean of the six formulas, with the Mosteller formula producing the same value.en_US
