A heretofore undescribed surgical approach for correcting a rare congenital cardiac malformation consisting of an absent right superior vena cava with persistent left superior vena cava associated with situs solitus draining into the left atrium is presented. The intra-atrial septum was intact. Normal anatomy was achieved and recovery was uneventful.
- Absent right superior vena cava
- Intact atrial septum
- Persistent left superior vena cava
- Situs solitus
- Surgical correction
