Percutaneous occlusion of a left superior vena cava draining into the left atrium: two case reports



Percutaneous occlusion of a left superior vena cava draining into the left atrium: two case reports



Archives des Maladies du Coeur et des Vaisseaux 100(5): 470-473



Persistent left superior caval vein draining into the left atrium is responsible for a right-to-left shunt which can be source of desaturation and systemic embolism. We present 2 cases of successful percutaneous treatment in 2 patients in whom no bridging vein existed and systemic desaturation was found after repair of the underlying congenital heart.
