Total anomalous pulmonary venous connection

Total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) means that there is no connection from the pulmonary veins to the left atrium. Instead, they are redirected to the right atrium through an unusual connection. This defect affects new-borns and may need urgent surgery depending on its severity. Other, less severe cases may be detected when the baby is a few weeks or months old. In these cases, surgery is also necessary.
