Abstract

Obstructed “total anomalous pulmonary venous connection” mostly presents with respiratory distress secondary to pulmonary congestion. We report two very sick patients who were referred to our cardiac center for intervention to relieve vertical vein (VV) obstruction. Due to hemodynamic instability and associated morbidity, the decision in our combined meeting was to go for interventional cardiac catheterization.
