Abstract

A 10-year-old male was admitted to our institution with complaints of mild cyanosis and dyspnea. Transthoracic echocardiography and angiography revealed a right superior vena cava (SVC) draining into the left atrium. At the time of surgery, the right SVC was connected to the right atrium. doi: 10.1111/j.1540-8191.2012.01509.x (J Card Surg 2012;27:623-625)
