PMID:  1554282     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Acute pulmonary edema developed in 2 patients after a Blalock-Taussig shunt procedure. Both patients had a univentricular heart complex with pulmonary stenosis. One patient underwent a modified Blalock-Taussig shunt using a polytetrafluoroethylene tube and the other underwent a classic Blalock-Taussig anastomosis. Acute pulmonary edema after the Blalock-Taussig shunt is rare, but once it has occurred, immediate treatment is obligatory.
