Abstract

Total anomalous pulmonary venous return (TAPVR) is an uncommon cause of cyanotic congenital heart disease in the neonatal period. This diagnosis is often made by echocardiography. We present two cases where echocardiography was not confirmatory. Computerized tomography (CT) scan of the chest and abdomen with contrast was performed instead of cardiac catheterization to establish the diagnosis. We suggest that CT with contrast is a noninvasive modality to obtain anatomic details of pulmonary venous drainage in TAPVR when echocardiography is inconclusive.
