Persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) connected to the left atrium

Author

Abstract
Abstract : A persistent left superior vena cava draining into the left atrium was diagnosed in an adult patient, scheduled for surgical correction of a large inferiorly located sinus venosus atrial septal defect. In the majority of cases a persistent left superior vena cava is found incidentally and causes little or no symptoms. Nevertheless, anaesthesiologist should be aware of its occurrence, because of different technical difficulties and clinical problems that can be encountered. Echocardiography plays an key role in the detection of a persistent left superior vena cava.
