Course Description

After reading this article, the learner should be able to:
- recognize that after surgical repair of primary pulmonary vein stenosis, even in the current era, restenosis, reoperation, and mortality are still significant.
- infer that a pulmonary vein stenosis score (PVS score) as described in this paper can predict outcomes.
- describe that in this paper, the type of surgical repair (sutureless technique versus more standard technique) had equivalent outcomes.
- explain that postoperative high PVS score and pulmonary hypertension one month after surgery are independent risk factors for restenosis, reoperation, and mortality.
