Abstract

We report on a 63-year-old man with an absence of right superior vena cava in visceroatrial situs solitus who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting. Preoperative echocardiography showed a dilated coronary sinus, and venography confirmed an absent right and a persistent left superior vena cava. Perioperatively, placement of a pulmonary artery catheter, site of venous cannulation, and management of associated rhythm abnormalities were of great concern. The assessment of the right superior vena cava is advisable in carrying out the surgical procedure without any difficulties related to this anomaly when the persistent left superior vena cava is suspected.
