Surgical repair of common atrium associated with persistent left superior vena cava draining into the left atrium



Surgical repair of common atrium associated with persistent left superior vena cava draining into the left atrium



Kyobu Geka. Japanese Journal of Thoracic Surgery 42(6): 490-494



A case of 54-year-old female of common atrium associated with persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) draining into the left atrium and absence of the coronary sinus was experienced. The corrective surgery was done by using a horseshoe-shaped autologous pericardial patch to make a new atrial septum to allow the PLSVC draining into the right atrium. Since the common atrium is frequently associated with maldrainage of the PLSVC, the surgical treatment should be determined according to existence of the PLSVC and its opening site.
