Tweet (See Normal Heart Image for comparison) Click image to see download options from Flickr: supracardiac Total Anomalous Pulmonary Vein Return (TAPVR) [supra=above, cardiac=of the heart, anomalous=not normal, pulmonary=having to do with the lungs, vein=blood vessel, return=come back] a structural defect where the pulmonary veins (which normally carry oxygen-rich blood from the lungs back to the left atrium of the heart) do not connect to the left atrium at all. Instead, the pulmonary veins connect to the innominate Vein (which brings oxygen-depleted blood from the head back to the superior vena cava and…

108 Repaired: DORV

Heart defect surgical repair: The holes in the septal walls were patched. (ASD and VSD). A baffle was inserted connecting the Left Ventricle to the Aorta. The tricuspid valve was fixed at the same time as the VSD–with great care to not further damage the tissue cords responsible for opening the leaflets (the 3 parts that make up the tricuspid valve).
