The clinical and anatomic findings in 36 patients (21 postmortem cases and 15 living patients) with partially anomalous (16 [44%]) or totally anomalous (20 [56%]) pulmonary venous drainage directly to the right atrium constitute the material basis of this report. Displacement of septum primum--leftward in atrial situs solitus or rightward in atrial situs inversus--was present in all and appeared responsible for the anomalous pulmonary venous drainage. The pulmonary veins were connected with… CONTINUE READING
