Abstract

The Total anomalous connection of pulmonary veins (TAPVC) of the infracardiac type is a rare pathology whose diagnosis is achieved by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). However, due to its limitations, thorax angiotomography (TAT) emerged as the preferred complementary modality due to its high resolution, as well as multiplanar and 3D reconstruction capabilities, which are essential for correct anatomical evaluation and surgical planning.

We present the clinical case of a pediatric patient in whom TAT was performed in addition to a TTE study to determine the size, number, and connection of the pulmonary veins.

Keywords: Total Anomalous Connection of Infracardiac type Pulmonary Veins; Transthoracic Echocardiography; Congenital Heart Disease; Computed Tomography Angiography of the Chest; Thorax Angiotomography (TAT).
