Abstract

Primary repair of infracardiac total anomalous pulmonary venous connection is associated with a significant risk of recurrent pulmonary venous obstruction. Herein we describe a technique of primary repair in which a modified sutureless anastomosis is constructed by suturing the left atrium to the posterior mediastinal pleura that surrounds the pulmonary venous confluence.
