Magnetic resonance angiography in paced complex heterotaxy syndrome with fontan conduit obstruction and venovenous collateral decompression

Congenital Heart Disease, 04/27/2012

High–resolution MR angiography demonstrated the complex postsurgical cardiovascular anatomy and also assisted in the evaluation of cavopulmonary shunt patency and secondary venovenous shunt formation. Time–resolved MR angiography evaluated pulmonary perfusion and demonstrated a significant pulmonary arteriovenous malformation. This information guided physicians in planning further managements, which resulted in a satisfactory clinical outcome.
