Abstract

The incidence of pulmonary vein stenosis after correction of a cardiac total anomalous pulmonary venous connection in neonates may be underestimated because of the small population of patients; however, it is associated with significant mortality and morbidity. This report describes a primary sutureless repair and anterior translocation of the atrial septum to create a large left atrial cavity and avoid post-repair pulmonary vein stenosis.
