Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Partial anomalous pulmonary venous drainage is a rare congenital anomaly which can lead to right heart enlargement. It may present in isolation or more commonly in association with other congenital cardiac anomalies. We present three different cases of partial anomalous pulmonary venous drainage in adults. The importance of identifying partial anomalous venous drainage as the cause of otherwise unexplained right heart enlargement is illustrated by these cases.
