Heterotaxy syndrome refers to complex cardiac pathologies accompanied by several intracardiac development abnormalities. One of the main problems in these patients is total abnormal pulmonary venous connection. Although stenting the patent ductus arteriosus in newborns can be performed in several centers, stenting of the vertical vein in obstructed total abnormal pulmonary venous connection is not a well-established procedure. Herein, we report a newborn case with obstructive supracardiac total abnormal pulmonary venous connection and pulmonary atresia who was successfully treated with transcatheter palliation.
