Abstract

A 9-month-old girl presented with cyanosis after correction of total anomalous pulmonary venous return (TAPVR) to the coronary sinus in the neonatal period. During corrective surgery, the right superior vena cava (RSVC) was damaged and re-anastomosed to the right atrium. Echocardiography showed increased flow velocity in the pulmonary venous confluence. Therefore, pulmonary venous obstruction was suspected. However, subsequent cardiac MRI revealed a stenosed RSVC as well as a dilated left superior vena cava (LSVC) draining from the left innominate vein into the pulmonary venous confluence. The re-recruited LSVC drained deoxygenated blood into the systemic circulation, causing cyanosis. After uncomplicated placement of a stent in the narrowed RSVC and occlusion of the LSVC, transcutaneous saturations normalised immediately.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 03 November 2011.
All research outputs
#2,671,721
of 5,039,474 outputs
Outputs from Pediatric Radiology
#196
of 476 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#31,994
of 74,397 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Pediatric Radiology
#2
of 10 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 5,039,474 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 476 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.7. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 74,397 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 10 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 8 of them.
