Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This report describes the preoperative diagnosis of a 6-month-old child with tricuspid atresia related to an unroofed coronary sinus. The anomaly usually is diagnosed after the Fontan operation due to persistent arterial desaturation. Preoperative recognition of this association is important. All cases of tricuspid atresia should be screened for associated persistent left superior vena cava draining into an unroofed coronary sinus.
