Information About Anomalous Pulmonary Veins

(also known as Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection)

Anomalous pulmonary veins occur when the pulmonary veins do not join the left atrium during development and instead deliver blood to the heart by other pathways, which may be narrowed. Pressure builds up in this pathway and in the pulmonary veins, pushing fluid into the lungs, and decreasing the amount of oxygenated blood that reaches the body.
