Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return



This 3D-printed anatomical model of a heart with an anomalous pulmonary venous return is an exceptional educational tool that brings to life the complexity of the human cardiovascular system. 

This particular model represents a case of APVR detected in adulthood, with a supra-cardiac partial blood return through the azygos vein. It was derived from CT imagery and is a perfect addition to any medical, educational, or research facility.

The model is ideal for hands-on learning, allowing students to explore the anatomy of a heart with this condition and gain a better understanding of the complex cardiovascular system. In addition, it is often used by medical personnel to educate patients and their families on the congenital defect. With this replica, you can explore the structure and function of the heart with a focus on the pulmonary venous return condition.

This model is a must-have for any medical or educational facility. It is a great way to facilitate a deeper understanding of the anatomy of the heart and cardiovascular system, whether you are a medical professional, student, or a member of the general public.


Anomalous pulmonary venous return (APVR) affects less than 1% of patients with congenital heart defects. In patients with APVR, at least one pulmonary vein returns blood to the right atrium. APVRs involving all pulmonary veins (a total pulmonary venous return) require surgery shortly after birth, while APVRs involving one or two pulmonary veins may produce no symptoms at all.
