Partial anomalous pulmonary venous return is a rare congenital heart defect characterized by 1 or more but not all of the pulmonary veins draining somewhere other than the left atrium, thereby creating a left-to-right shunt. Over time, right-sided volume overload may develop with its subsequent complications. We present a case of isolated partial anomalous pulmonary venous return in an older patient who underwent a Warden procedure at age 77 years, with rapid improvement in right ventricular size and function.
