Total Anomalous Pulmonary Return
An Analysis of Thirty Cases
Thirty cases of total anomalous pulmonary return have been collected and analyzed. The pathways of drainage and their embryologic development are discussed. The cardiac catheterization, electrocardiographic and radiologic findings are also presented. These laboratory data accompanied by the clinical findings seem to identify a recognizable diagnostic picture for this malformation. Finally, our attempts at surgical correction of this defect are briefly enumerated.
