Abstract

Systemic hypertension is not usually a complication following repair of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC). We report an infant with supracardiac TAPVC with hypertensive crises post-operatively resulting in pulmonary edema. We feel this might have been related to the pre-operative hemodynamics as described. Beta-blockers improved the hypertensive crises.
