Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Newborns with obstructed infradiaphragmatic total anomalous pulmonary venous return (TAPVR) are often clinically unstable. Temporary relief of the pulmonary venous obstruction may improve their clinical status before surgical repair. Three neonates (two premature and one full-term) with obstructed infradiaphragmatic TAPVR at the ductus venosus (DV) underwent stenting of the DV by way of an umbilical venous approach. Their clinical condition stabilized, thus allowing subsequent elective surgical repair.
