Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection with infradiaphragmatic drainage into the inferior vena cava (scimitar syndrome) constitutes a rare diagnosis in adults. Diagnosis is suggested by plain chest roentgenogram and confirmed by computed tomography angiography or magnetic resonance imaging. Reported operations for scimitar syndrome are complex, often requiring circulatory arrest. Reoperation for pulmonary vein stenosis is a troubling complication. We report an effective simplified operation for use in adults.
