Abstract

A 7-year-old boy with partial anomalous pulmonary venous drainage to the high superior vena cava (SVC) underwent surgical repair by Williams procedure. Right upper pulmonary vein was drained to the left atrium via the SVC and the surgically enlarged sinus venosus type ASD. SVC was ligated and divided. SVC was then anastomosed to RA appendage pedicle directly. Autologous pericardium was patched anteriorly to create a new SVC pathway. The postoperative course was uneventful without arrhythmia and cardiac catheterization 1 month postoperation revealed no stenosis of the SVC and right upper pulmonary venous return.
