LEFT PARTIAL ANOMALOUS PULMONARY VENOUS RETURN SURGERY PHOTOS

My daughter gave me permission to post these photos of her open heart surgery. We hope that these photos will help others to better understand left partial pulmonary venous return. 

These pictures were given to me by her Mayo Clinic Cardiac Surgeon, Dr. Dearani. 

Dr. Dearani is an incredible surgeon who saved my daughter's life. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Dearani and the Mayo Clinic.
