Abstract

We describe an infant with severe obstruction of infra-cardiac totally anomalous pulmonary venous connection associated with right isomerism, atrioventricular septal defect, pulmonary atresia, and multiple aortopulmonary collateral arteries. Implantation of a stent into the obstructed descending vertical vein provided effective palliation, with a dramatic increase in saturations of oxygen obviating the need for urgent high-risk surgery.
