Data was obtained from January 2010 to August 2016 from the medical records of patients diagnosed with TAPVR on echocardiography and had subsequent confirmation either on cardiac CT angiography or surgery.
2) Disease-related: This includes right atrial isomerism, associated CHD, type of TAPVR (supra, infra, cardiac and mixed varieties).
We could not comment on specificity as only diagnosed cases of TAPVR were included in this study.

Echocardiography was found to be highly sensitive in diagnosing isolated TAPVR (81%) while in mixed variety and TAPVR associated with other CHD, the diagnostic value was low (27%) (Table-II).
Contributing factors to diagnostic errors: Diagnostic error was most common with the mixed variety of TAPVR (seen in 80%) with three (75%) cases having only one pulmonary vein draining separately while the other three pulmonary veins drained within the confluence.
The sensitivity of echocardiography in diagnosing TAPVR has been reported to be around 80%.11 Lee et al concluded that cardiac catheterization and angiocardiography were unnecessary, and echocardiography could accurately determine the pulmonary venous drainage site.
