A technique is described for repair of partial anomalous pulmonary venous drainage associated with sinus venosus atrial septal defect. The procedure, using a single autologous pericardial patch, is able to facilitate both reconstruction of the pulmonary venous channel and enlargement of the superior vena cava. This technique also reduces the incidence of arrhythmias.
