Late mortality following surgical repair of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) is often associated with pulmonary venous stenosis. We describe here two successful cases of primary sutureless repair for simple TAPVC in patients who had a potential risk of postoperative pulmonary venous stenosis. A 10-day-old neonate with mixed-type TAPVC and a 30-day-old infant with supracardiac TAPVC underwent primary sutureless repair with our modification. In the early follow-up, both patients are now doing well and have no signs of pulmonary venous stenosis. The sutureless repair can be applied as a primary surgical option to prevent postoperative pulmonary venous stenosis in selective patients with simple TAPVC.
