Abstract

A 16-year-old female with partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection to the high superior vena cava underwent a successful correction using only autologous pericardium. Right upper pulmonary venous blood returned to the left atrium via the superior vena cava and the constructed atrial septal defect. The right atrium received blood from the brachiocephalic vein through the conduit. The azygos vein was not identified. Post-operative examination revealed that there were no pressure gradients across the superior vena cava and the conduit. She was discharged from the hospital on the 14th post-operative day.
