Abstract: The goal of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection repair is to obtain an unobstructed communication between the pulmonary veins and the left atrium and removing intracardiac shunting. However, pulmonary venous obstruction orstenosis may be seen in 5-10% of patients, is usually evident in the first 6 months following surgery and may lead to pulmonary congestion, pulmonary arterial hypertension, and late mortality. In such cases, early intervention may be indicated before irreversible secondary changes occur. We present the case and the therapeutic approach of an adolescent patient with total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage to the superior vena cava operated in infancy who developed pulmonary venous obstruction and secondary severe pulmonary arterial hypertension.
