Pulmonary vein stenosis may occur following the repair of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection and carries a poor prognosis. Conventional surgical therapies have been complicated by a high rate of re-stenosis. Sutureless pericardial marsupialization has been introduced as a technique to reduce the rate of re-stenosis. This report describes a retrospective review of a group of patients undergoing repair of acquired pulmonary vein stenosis. Presence of single-ventricle anatomy was found to be the primary preoperative risk factor for a poor outcome. The use of sutureless pericardial marsupialization was found to be associated with a significant improvement in disease-free survival.
