Abstract

Increasingly, patients undergo heart transplant after previous heart surgery. In patients with a persistent left superior vena cava (LSVC), the preferred technique, preservation of drainage via the native coronary sinus, can be difficult in reoperative cases due to adhesions. We report a technique simplifying this operation in such a patient.
