Vertical vein and Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome

Junya Sugiura, Hajime Sakurai, Toshimichi Nonaka, Takahisa Sakurai, Tetsuyoshi Taneichi, Ryohei Otsuka
We herein report a case of a hypoplastic left heart syndrome variant complicated with partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection to the left innominate vein. We left the vertical vein at the time of the bidirectional Glenn procedure, and ligated the vertical vein at the time of the total cavopulmonary connection procedure, without reconnecting the vertical vein to the left atrium. Because of the development of an interlobar vein draining from the left upper lung into the lower lung after the bidirectional Glenn procedure, the circulation of the left upper lung was preserved after the total cavopulmonary connection procedure...

Total anomalous pulmonary venous return (TAPVR) associated with hypoplastic left heart-syndrome (HLHS) is a rare condition, and from the therapeutical point of view associated with a high Aristotle score and thus increased mortality. We report two newborns with HLHS, one with a supracardiac type of TAPVR and mildly obstructed left vertical vein, and the other with a supracardiac type of TAPVR in association with cor triatriatum and severely obstructed left-sided vertical vein. In both patients, radio frequency perforation from the pulmonary venous confluence to the systemic venous atrium was performed with consecutive gradual balloon dilatation, followed by stent placement in one...

OBJECTIVE: Prenatal diagnosis of total (TAPVC) or partial (PAPVC) anomalous pulmonary venous connection in isolation or associated with other cardiac disease is important for appropriate prenatal counseling and perinatal management. We sought to assess the echocardiographic clues to the fetal diagnosis of TAPVC and PAPVC in a cohort of affected fetuses. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 29 fetal echocardiograms performed in 16 pregnancies with fetal TAPVC or PAPVC, systematically analyzing heart chamber size, presence of a confluence behind the left atrium or of a vertical vein, and Doppler flow patterns...
