Intraatrial rerouting techniques have been the most common approaches to correcting left superior vena caval drainage to the left atrium in patients without atrial isomerism and with no 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 three extracardiac approaches to the correction of left superior vena cava draining to the left atrium.
