Pulmonary venous air embolism in the neonate

Academic Article


  • We treated an infant with symptomatic PVAE who survived for 13 days. The clinical course of our patient, the longest survivor with PVAE, can have important implications for the approach to this fatal condition. This report discusses the symptoms and treatment of that patient, and compares them to other PVAE cases at our hospital and in the literature.
