ABSTRACT

Teenager, presenting congenital anomalous partial drainage of the right pulmonary veins to inferior vena cava in supradiaphragmatic position. The surgical approach was made with the use of extracorporeal circulation and resulted in a wide communication between the anomalous vein and the left atrium. The authors discuss the diagnostic and surgical approach of this rare anomaly.
