Anomalous pulmonary venous connection of the entire left lung into the left innominate vein is very rare. 5 patients with this anomaly were managed in the authors' institution over the last 12 years. Clinically they were diagnosed as cases of pretricuspid left-to-right shunt at atrial level. Cardiac catheterisation and angiography demonstrated the anomalous drainage of the entire left lung into the left innominate vein. Anastomosis between the vertical vein and the left atrium was established using conventional cardiopulmonary bypass, hypothermia, and cold cardioplegic diastolic arrest of the heart. Postoperative course was uneventful. 4 of the 5 patients presented for follow-up during 1-12 years (mean 6.5 years). All are asymptomatic and have been studied with echocardiography, angiography, and magnetic resonance imaging techniques. The anastomatic site was found to be non obstructive in all the patients.
