What is obstructed TAPVC?

Dr. Smita Mishra, Paediatric Cardiologist, Associate Director - Jaypee Hospital, will discuss about the obstructed TAPVC in this video. Babies born with obstructed TAPVC are very sick from birth and many times they are taken as case of lung infection rather than a cardiac problem. In these babies, an early surgery is advised. A bluish baby with tachypnea and not having fever should be considered of obstructed TAPVC. She will further discuss the management if the baby is born with non-obstructive TAPVC.
