SILVA, Célia M. C. et al. Infracardiac total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage: a diagnostic challenge. Arq. Bras. Cardiol. [online]. 2007, vol.88, n.4, pp.e81-e83. ISSN 0066-782X.

Infracardiac total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage can be erroneously diagnosed as respiratory distress of several different etiologies during the neonatal period. A cross-sectional echocardiography study with Doppler color flow mapping can preoperatively determine the precise drainage site and pulmonary venous return pattern, thereby allowing cardiac surgery to be performed promptly, prior to any clinical deterioration.

Keywords : Pulmonary veins; echocardiography; heart defects, congenital.
