Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Total anomalous pulmonary venous connection is a rare variant of cyanotic congenital heart disease and usually requires surgical correction within the first few months of life. We report midterm results of a 63-year-old male with intracardiac total anomalous venous return into the coronary sinus who presented with congestive predominantly right heart failure and underwent corrective surgery with unroofing of the coronary sinus and patch closure of the secundum atrial septal defect.
