Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Surgical Correction of Pulmonary Vein Stenosis. Pulmonary vein stenosis can complicate ablation procedures for atrial fibrillation and often presents with severe respiratory symptoms. Described in this case report is a 21-year-old male who underwent a bilateral surgical augmentation of the pulmonary veins for severe occlusive pulmonary vein stenosis. The occluded left lower and right upper lobe veins were surgically modified to regain flow to the left atrium. Follow-up computed tomogram imaging showed patency of the veins intervened upon and an exercise test demonstrated an oxygen saturation of 98% at peak stress.This case report marks the first-ever surgical intervention for acquired pulmonary vein stenosis.
