To Nickbar: Thank you - I have read this response from specialists as they responded to original article that has shown on the internet over a year ago. There is more evidence now available here: http://www.cpirf.org/stories/2286 ,or here http://www.anesthesia-analgesia.org/...06/6/1681.long, and in many other new articles I came across recently and I do each new time I start to search for answer. I understand that the PWS kids are healthy and duration of surgeries are short but studies show many of those kids who show increased risks for learning difficulties after more than 2 exposure do anesthetic agents during first 3 years of life were in general healthy too, as in example of hernia repair surgeries. Thank you for sharing though, that article did not reassured me to the point to change the mind yet.
