Superior vena cava-right atrial appendage direct anastomosis for repair of partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection to superior vena cava



Superior vena cava-right atrial appendage direct anastomosis for repair of partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection to superior vena cava



Kyobu Geka. Japanese Journal of Thoracic Surgery 47(4): 307-310



Successful repair was performed for a 7-year-old male with a diagnosis of partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) to superior vena cava (SVC) and superior sinus venosus atrial septal defect (ASD). The SVC was divided above the orifice of the anomalous pulmonary vein and the cephalad end of the SVC was anastomosed directly to the right atrial appendage. A patch was used to divert pulmonary venous flow from the orifice of the SVC through superior sinus venosus ASD into the left atrium. Postoperative course was uneventful with normal sinus rhythm. There was no evidence of vena caval or pulmonary venous obstruction. At 3-month after surgery, sinus node function was confirmed to be normal by electrophysiological study. This is useful alternative method for repair of PAPVC to high or middle SVC.
