Congenital anomalies of the pulmonary veins and arteries are rare congenital cardiac defects. Without surgery, mortality during infancy is high with few children surviving to adulthood.

Our understanding of the outcomes after surgery is evolving as emerging information from longitudinal studies have shed light on longer term survival of these patients. There is now a growing population of these patients surviving into adulthood. This project aimed at expanding our understanding of the prognosis and long-term outcomes of children who underwent surgery for partial and total anomalous pulmonary ..
