ⓘ Anomalous pulmonary venous connection

Total anomalous pulmonary venous connection, also known as total anomalous pulmonary venous return, is a rare cyanotic congenital heart defect in which all four pulmonary veins are malpositioned and make anomalous connections to the systemic venous circulation. Normally, pulmonary veins return oxygenated blood from the lungs to the left atrium where it can then be pumped to the rest of the body. A patent foramen ovale, patent ductus arteriosus or an atrial septal defect must be present, or else the condition is fatal due to a lack of systemic blood flow.

In TAPVC without obstruction, surgical redirection can be done within the first month of life. The surgery is performed under General anesthesia. Four pulmonary veins, has been restored to the left atrium, and any associated heart defects such as atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect, patent foramen ovale and / or patent ductus arteriosus surgically closed. With obstruction, surgical treatment should be immediate. The combination of drugs prostaglandin E1, it follows that the patent ductus arteriosus allows oxygenated blood from the circulation from the right heart to the systemic circulation.
