Repair Type Influences Mode of Pulmonary Vein Stenosis in Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Drainage.

Abstract

BACKGROUND We hypothesized that primary sutureless (SL) repair of total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage (TAPVD) may have a lower incidence of postrepair pulmonary vein obstruction (PVO) and different modes of PVO compared with standard repair (SR). METHODS One hundred ninety-five patients who underwent TAPVD repair (1990 to 2012) with the exception of… (More)
