MULTIDISCIPLINARY MANAGEMENT OF A RARE CASE OF MIXED TOTAL ANOMALOUS
PULMONARY VENOUS CONNECTION
A rare case of mixed total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC)
associated to right extra-lobar bronchopulmonary sequestration (BPS) was
diagnosed at birth in a full-term newborn. At one month of age, the
patient underwent embolization of the BPS, complicated by coil
entrapment in the right common iliac artery requiring urgent laparotomy.
Few days later, the congenital cardiac repair was accomplished
uneventfully. At 12-months follow-up, the patient did not have pulmonary
hypertension, but presented a moderate stenosis of the right femoral
artery, which was effectively treated with anticoagulation therapy.
