Abstract

We examined the surgical results of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) retrospectively in 6 infants, who were less than 3 months old and underwent a total repair at Ehime Prefectural Central Hospital between May, 1993 through May, 1998, in terms of the pre, peri, and postoperative management, the site of connection, and the surgical procedures. Aged at operation ranged from 1 day to 86 days (mean 39 days), and body weight ranged from 2.4 kg to 5.5 kg (mean 3.4 kg). All 6 patients had echocardiographic diagnosis and cardiac catheterization but one. In operative procedure, cut back method was done in a patient of paracardiac type of Darling's classification and posterior approach was used in total correction for 4 supracardiac and 1 infracardiac type. There were 3 hospital deaths who had poor conditions before operation, but no late deaths. Surgical results of TAPVC might have been improved with advances in non-invasive diagnosis by echocardiography, and pre and perioperative management. And we should take care of these patients of TAPVC in long term period to make sure that they have no pulmonary venous obstruction.
