As noted by the authors, severe clinical disease or associated complex CHD often compels management decisions in neonates, while the decision to perform surgery in older children and adults is frequently fraught with ambiguity. Unfortunately, the current data do not provide substantial insight into decision-making for this latter group, largely because adolescents and adults made up only a small subset of the study sample. Current clinical guidelines for the care of adults with CHD do not comment specifically on scimitar syndrome or other forms of partial anomalous pulmonary venous return.16,17 While there are sometimes idiosyncratic reasons to consider surgery, such as recurrent infection, in most cases the decision rests on the balance between the chronic effects of the right heart volume load and operative risk, both acute and long term. The authors propose a treatment algorithm, based on their considerable clinical experience and expertise, to guide surgical referral for isolated scimitar syndrome.
