The total anomalous pulmonary venous connection comprises of a birth malformation of flow of blood where the four pulmonary veins filter into the right atrium with or without the obstruction of pulmonary veins. Pulmonary and systemic blood of veins gets mixed together in the right atrium. The four veins that carry blood from lungs to the heart do not really attach themselves casually towards the left atrium, but instead to some wrong part of the heart.
It is an uncommon defect of a congenital nature that represents 2% of congenital anomalies of the heart. The veins link themselves to the left atrium or the heart by means of an unusual connection.

Any baby with this defect may need a surgery to correct the condition. The extent of the sickness of the child or a particular structure of connections between the right atrium and the pulmonary veins shall determine the age of the baby at which the surgery needs to be performed. The purpose of surgical correction is to maintain the normal flow of blood to the heart. To correct it, experts will link the pulmonary vein and the right atrium, and will dismiss any unusual connections between blood vessels, and will simultaneously close the defect.
Generally, the disease is diagnosed while running the pregnancy test or when the baby is born. However, you should consult a doctor, if you notice the symptoms such as infections in the respiratory system, fatigue, inadequate growth, rapid breathing, discolouration of the skin, etc.
