Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return (TAPVR): Infracardiac

TAPVR Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return Infracardiac

In a child born with total anomalous pulmonary venous return (TAPVR), the pulmonary veins connect to other veins, and ultimately drain their blood into the right atrium. In infracardiac TAPVR, the pulmonary veins drain into the right atrium through the liver (hepatic) veins and the inferior vena cava. The inferior vena cava is another large vein that normally carries only deoxygenated blood into the right atrium from the lower half of the body. Learn more about TAPVR »
