Horcher E - - 1987
A case of scimitar syndrome with pulmonary sequestration is reported. Anomalous pulmonary venous return from the right lung to the infradiaphragmatic vena cava inferior was diagnosed by pulmonary angiogram and sequestration of the right lower lobe was confirmed by aortogram. Venous return from the sequestrated lung was partly into the ...
Livingston D R - - 1986
Bronchopulmonary sequestration is a congenital anomaly in which part of the pulmonary tissue is detached from the normal lung and is supplied by anomalous systemic arteries. The sequestered, aberrant lung tissue does not have normal connections with the tracheobronchial tree or pulmonary arteries. In some patients with angiographic characteristics of ...
Sand M E - - 1986
Connection of an anomalous left superior vena cava to the left atrium is an uncommon lesion that is usually associated with other complex intracardiac malformations. A technique for diverting the anomalous caval return along the left atrial roof and into the right atrium is presented. This simple tunnel method avoids ...

Fifty-one patients at the Brompton Hospital were identified as having either right or left atrial isomerism by reviewing the records and catheterization, echocardiographic and, in 17 cases, autopsy data. Every study patient had 1 or more of the following conditions: isomeric bronchial anatomy; angiographic or necropsy evidence of atrial anatomy; ...
Weiner C - - 1986
The causes of nonimmune hydrops fetalis are multiple. Despite the fact that many of the affected fetuses are otherwise free of fatal abnormalities, many die in the neonatal period from pulmonary hypoplasia. The overall perinatal mortality is as high as 80%. Extralobar pulmonary sequestration is an abnormal and nonaerated mass ...
Arciprete P - - 1986
Three infants who underwent operation for total anomalous pulmonary venous connection had unobstructed drainage of all the pulmonary veins to both the coronary sinus and left vertical vein. In one patient the anatomy was demonstrated preoperatively and complete correction accomplished without difficulty, but in two patients the second connection was ...
Enriques A M - - 1986
A 2 day old infant with infracardiac total anomalous pulmonary venous connection achieved an arterial oxygen tension greater than 250 mmHg, breathing 100% oxygen. Diagnosis of cardiac disease was delayed several weeks. The anatomical basis for this phenomenon was streaming of systemic venous return across an inferior vena cava type ...
Rodgers B M - - 1986
Ventral anomalies of accessory pulmonary tissue have been classified as "bronchopulmonary foregut malformations." Between July 1, 1981, and May 31, 1985, 10 children with bronchopulmonary malformations have been cared for on the Pediatric Surgical Service at the University of Virginia. Six patients had bronchogenic cysts, one in an extrathoracic location ...
Holder P D - - 1986
Intralobar pulmonary sequestration has generally been considered a congenital malformation in which an accessory lung bud develops, is enveloped by normal lung, and retains its systemic arterial supply. Also usually included in the "sequestration spectrum" are aberrant arteries to normal lung with either normal or anomalous venous connection. We reviewed ...
Stocker J T - - 1986
Sequestration of the lung is a well-recognized entity usually subclassified into one of two groups based on its location: intralobar sequestration (ILS), within the normal pleural investment, and extralobar sequestration (ELS), outside the normal pleural investment. ELS is clearly congenital in origin; it is seen most frequently in the neonatal ...
Ishizawa E - - 1986
A 8 month old infant with pulmonary artery sling and partial anomalous pulmonary venous drainage was reported. The patient was seen initially with severe stridor. Diagnosis was made by barium swallow study, echocardiography, bronchoscopy, and pulmonary arteriography. The patient was operated on through a median sternotomy; the left pulmonary artery ...
Vitarelli A - - 1986
Three patients with total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage (TAPVD) were studied by real-time cross-sectional colour-flow Doppler echocardiography. Serial suprasternal, parasternal and subcostal scans were obtained. In all cases surgical or angiocardiographic confirmation was available. Two patients had supracardiac drainage (to the left vertical vein or to the right superior vena ...
Arlart I P - - 1986
Anomalous pulmonary venous drainage can be detected and evaluated by angiographic studies. Now that intravenous DSA is available, this method can be used to demonstrate pulmonary venous return. This study presents the results of DSA examination in three patients having anomalous pulmonary vein connection with the left innominate vein and ...
McGaughey M D - - 1986
Two adults were seen with left partial anomalous pulmonary venous return with intact atrial septum.

Noninvasive tests, indocyanine green dye injections, pulmonary artery angiography, and venous sampling for oximetry high in the superior ...
Jennings J G - - 1986
The case of a 13-year-old girl with an unusual form of partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection is reported. Cardiac catheterization revealed anomalous connection of the right pulmonary veins to the azygos vein and an intact atrial septum. Rationale for nonsurgical management and four-year follow-up results are discussed.
Rey C - - 1986
We report a case in which the clinical findings of a partial anomalous pulmonary venous return were present but with termination of the anomalous pulmonary vein into the left atrium. There was hypoplasia of the right lung, dextroposition of the heart, and a loop-like vascular density in the right lung ...
Satomi G - - 1986
Ten patients with total and one with partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection were studied by two-dimensional Doppler color flow-mapping echocardiography. In cases of anomalous pulmonary venous drainage into the innominate vein through the vertical vein, flow away from the transducer was detected in the echo space behind the atria in ...
Soulen R L - - 1985
Correction of structural defects of the heart associated with cyanotic heart disease often requires rerouting of systemic venous return into the pulmonary arteries and pulmonary venous return into the ventricles. Preliminary experience suggests that magnetic resonance imaging, through its superior depiction of the resultant complex anatomy, provides important supplemental information ...
Sholler G F - - 1985
A case of pulmonary sequestration in a neonate presenting with hyperdynamic circulation and a murmur is reported. Clinical, radiographic and echocardiographic data suggested the diagnosis and this was confirmed by angiography. The surgical findings were those of sequestration of the right lower lobe, in conjunction with an accessory right lung ...
Wagenvoort C A - - 1985
Pulmonary vessels from 26 patients with pulmonary veno-occlusive disease were studied histologically and morphometrically. In addition to the well-known obstruction of veins and venules, pulmonary arteries were also narrowed or obliterated in approximately half of the patients. It is unlikely that the arterial intimal fibrosis, which was sometimes as severe ...
Weiman D S - - 1985
In this report, 24 patients with partial anomalous pulmonary venous return were reviewed. Six of the eight patients with left-sided drainage were repaired without extracorporeal circulation by anastomosing the left-sided vein to the left atrium. Symptoms resolved in five of the six. Two of the eight were surgically repaired by ...
Kern L S - - 1985
The Fontan procedure has afforded improved surgical repair for several complex congenital cardiac defects, including tricuspid atresia and single ventricle. Through surgical creation of a connection between the RA and the RV or PA, adequate pulmonary perfusion can be achieved without an RV. Although it is not an anatomic connection, ...
Vargas F J - - 1985
A technique was employed successfully for correction of total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage into the upper right superior vena cava. A J-shaped right atriotomy was performed; the posterior flap was sutured to the anterior border of a previously enlarged atrial septal defect. The right superior vena cava was divided above ...
Kobayashi Y - - 1985
We report a case diagnosed as pulmonary sequestration by radionuclide angiography prior to operation which showed anomalous arteries. Radionuclide angiography clearly revealed the condition of both the pulmonary artery and aorta, and is considered to be extremely useful in the diagnosis of pulmonary sequestration. It will probably be applied to ...
Thind C R - - 1985
A child presented with a chest infection. A chest radiograph showed consolidation in the left lung base. This failed to clear in spite of adequate antibiotic therapy. Ultrasound examination (real-time) suggested pulmonary sequestration, and an aberrant blood supply was demonstrated. Subsequent angiography, surgery and pathological examination of the resected segment ...
Huhta J C - - 1985
Total anomalous pulmonary venous connection can be diagnosed by cross sectional echocardiography. Information is, however, lacking concerning the diagnostic accuracy of this imaging method and any factors which may influence it. To predict the pulmonary venous connection 463 patients with congenital heart disease who had angiographic confirmation were prospectively examined. ...
Pacifico A D - - 1985
Repair of localized bilateral congenital pulmonary venous stenosis with living autologous atrial tissue was accomplished in two patients, 3 and 4 months of age.
