PMID:  9594883     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A modified repair technique is reported for mixed total or partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection with the right superior pulmonary vein connecting to the superior vena cava, the right inferior pulmonary vein to the right atrium or left atrium, and the left pulmonary veins to the coronary sinus. The superior vena cava is transected above the highest right superior pulmonary vein, its cephalad end is anastomosed to the right atrial appendage, and a pericardial baffle is constructed between the cardiac ostium of the superior vena cava, the ostium of the right inferior pulmonary vein, and the left atrium, including the coronary sinus, which is unroofed. The reported technique may be valuable to avoid pulmonary venous obstruction in complex mixed forms of total or partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection.
