Functional total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage by left atrium-to-superior vena cava shunt

Abstract

Total anomalous pulmonary venous connection is occasionally associated with a functional single ventricle and is thought to be a risk for the staged Fontan approach. We report a patient with a very rare presentation of mitral atresia and intact atrial septum with physiologically total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage by a connecting vein between the left atrium and the superior vena cava. A surgical atrioseptectomy as a functional repair of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection and pulmonary artery banding was successfully performed as the first palliation for Fontan completion.

Birth Defects

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.
