Operative technique for persistent left superior vena cava draining into the left atrium



Operative technique for persistent left superior vena cava draining into the left atrium



Annals of Thoracic Surgery 62(4): 1188-1190



We applied a surgical method with an inverted flap of the left atrial appendage to construct an internal conduit in a 4-year-old girl with a persistent left superior vena cava draining into the left atrium associated with an atrial septal defect. The remaining defect of the septum was closed with autologous pericardium. The short-term result is satisfactory, although the long-term result remains to be ascertained.
