      • Pathology

        • Clinical Issues

          TERMINOLOGY

          • Abbreviations

            • Total anomalous pulmonary venous return (TAPVR) or "drainage"
              • Refers to hemodynamics: To where does pulmonary venous flow return (drain)
          • Synonyms

            • Total anomalous pulmonary venous connection
              • Refers to anatomy: To where do pulmonary veins (PVs) connect
          • Definitions

            • Failure of connection between PVs & left atrium
            • Category: Cyanotic; heart size & pulmonary vascularity depend on type
            • Hemodynamics
              • All pulmonary venous return goes to right heart (extracardiac left-to-right shunt)
              • Intracardiac right-to-left shunt through patent foramen ovale (PFO)
              • All types are admixture lesions
            • 3 types
              • Supracardiac TAPVR (type I, 50%): "Vertical" common PV joins left innominate vein
              • Cardiac TAPVR (type II, 20%): Common PV joins coronary sinus or right atrium
              • Infracardiac TAPVR (type III, 20%): Common PV joins portal vein, ductus venosus, hepatic veins, or inferior vena cava
              • Mixed or complex TAPVR when there is mixture of above types (10%)
