A 10-year-old boy with partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection to the high superior vena cava (SVC) underwent surgical repair by Williams method. The SVC was divided above the orifice of the anomalous pulmonary vein. The proximal end of the SVC was closed and the distal end of the SVC was anastomosed to the right atrial appendage (RAA). The anomalous pulmonary vein was rerouted to the left atrium via the SVC and the surgically enlarged central type atrial septal defect (ASD). The postoperative course was uneventful except transient sinus bradycardia and catheter study showed no stenosis of the SVC and the RAA.
