Total or partial anomalous pulmonary venous return (TAPVR or PAPVR) is a rare heart defect in which a child’s pulmonary veins don’t connect normally to the left atrium. Instead they’re re-directed to the right atrium by way of an abnormal (anomalous) connection.

Comprehensive information about this congenital heart defect can be found on our site at anomalous pulmonary venous return (TAPVR or PAPVR).
