It is well known that the vertical vein (VV) may have to be left open after repair of a total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) in children with preoperative obstruction, whose left heart chambers are small (Cope et al. in Ann Thorac Surg 64:23-29, 3). An unligated VV has been found to reduce pulmonary arterial pressure, decrease perioperative pulmonary hypertensive crisis, and provide better hemodynamics postoperatively (Chowdhry et al. in J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 133:1286-1294, 2). Although these VVs are expected to close later, they may remain patent in about half of these children (Cheung et al. J Paediatr Child Health 41:361-364, 1).The patent VVs may be a cause for significant left-to-right shunting, and the children may be symptomatic. The case report describes a child who had a large patent VV after repair of supracardiac TAPVC and its closure using the Amplatzer Vascular Plug II device.
