    Yes, progress made in the treatment of congenital heart disease has made it possible for children with total anomalous pulmonary venous return (and other heart defects) not only to survive but also to lead normal lives. Children who receive prompt treatment typically fare very well. However, if the lung veins re-narrow as the child grows up, repeat surgery may be required.
