Prompt recognition and early surgical correction are mandatory in neonates presenting with obstructed total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC). Preoperative balloon angioplasty of obstructed TAPVC in a sick neonate is rarely reported. We describe successful short-term palliation with balloon angioplasty of a critically ill neonate with obstructed supracardiac TAPVC.
