Pulmonary venous return anomaly

Pulmonary venous return anomaly: Introduction

Pulmonary venous return anomaly: A rare disorder where one or more of the four veins that carry oxygenated blood from the lungs drain to the right atrium of the heart instead of the left atrium. Symptom severity is determined by the number of veins involved and the exact location of the heart that the veins drain into. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Pulmonary venous return anomaly is available below.
