Operative correction of total left anomalous pulmonary venous return.

The evaluation, surgical repair, and follow-up are described in an asymptomatic 27-year-old man with unilateral total anomalous pulmonary venous return from the left lung through an innominate vein and a patent foramen ovale. The anomalous vein was divided and anastomosed directly to the left atrium using a vascular technique that produced an orifice larger than the vein diameter. Radionuclide scanning accurately identified the anomaly before operation and allows periodic noninvasive reevaluation after operation. Correction is recommended in all patients with unilateral anomalous pulmonary venous return because disease in the one normal lung could be fatal.[1]
