The triad of persistent left superior vena cava connected to the coronary sinus, right superior vena cava draining into the left atrium, and atrial septal defect: report of a successful operation for a rare anomaly



The triad of persistent left superior vena cava connected to the coronary sinus, right superior vena cava draining into the left atrium, and atrial septal defect: report of a successful operation for a rare anomaly



Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery 94(1): 151-153



The triad of right superior vena cava connecting to the left atrium, persistent left superior vena cava draining into the right atrium (coronary sinus), and atrial septal defect is a rare malformation. Recently, we successfully corrected this anomaly in a 47-year-old man.
