Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Two neonates with infradiaphragmatic type of total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage are reported in whom complete diagnosis was obtained by cross sectional (2D) echocardiography with Doppler and color flow mapping. Visualisation of a dilated venous channel draining into the portal venous system and separate from inferior vena cava and descending aorta in the subcostal view indicates infradiaphragmatic site of drainage of pulmonary veins in a patient with total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage. Doppler and color flow imaging help in defining the direction of blood flow and presence of turbulence in the common venous channel.
