A combination of cor triatriatum and persistent left superior vena cava without communication to the coronary sinus is uncommon. A 62-year-old male with this diagnosis in conjunction with atrial fibrillation underwent successful intracardiac repair done with a unique method. After a maze procedure and enlargement of the route from the pulmonary veins to the mitral valve, a GoreTex graft was used to reroute the left superior vena cava into the right atrium and to close two thirds of the circumference of the patient's atrial septal defect; the rest of the defect was closed with another GoreTex patch.
