Coronary sinus ostial atresia with persistent left superior caval vein in a patient with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries

  • Yuchen Zhang (a1), Hugo V. Alberdi (a1) and Elsie T. Nguyen (a1)


We present a case of a 57-year-old man with congenitally corrected transposition of great vessels who was found to have coronary ostial atresia with cranial flow through left superior vena cava on CT with contrast injection in coronary tributaries. As such, he was ineligible for cardiac resynchronization therapy.
