Left superior vena cava (LSVC) draining into the left atrium is a rare congenital cardiac complex. It may appear as an isolated anomaly or as part of more complex cardiac anomalies. Intraatrial rerouting techniques have been the most common approaches to correcting LSVC drainage into the left atrium in patients without a connecting vein. Although these techniques have proved reliable and successful, there are cases in which extracardiac methods for managing this form of anomalous systemic drainage may be preferable. In the present report, we describe an extracardiac approach to the correction of LSVC draining into the left atrium.
