Resumen

NARANJO UGALDE, Alfredo M.; GONZALEZ GUILLEN, Alexander; MARCANO SANS, Luis  y  SELMAN-HOUSSEIN SOSA, Eugenio. Drenaje anómalo total de venas pulmonares: Nuestra experiencia. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2002, vol.74, n.3, pp.208-212. ISSN 0034-7531.

The total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage is a cyanotic congenital heart disease with a high mortality in the first year of life. A retrospective review of the results obtained by our center in the surgical treatment of this rare disease during 15 years was made. 85 patients were operated on, 39 of them with supracardiac drainage and 9 with infracardiac drainage. The latter is the most serious and it causes a higher mortality. 47 patients with less than 5 kg of body weight were operated on.. 8 of them were under 3 kg. Only 16 patients were over one year old at the moment of the operation. 50 patients had postoperative complications. Mortality was 30.5 %. The total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage is today a challenge for surgery in the first year of life.
