Residual sinus venosus atrial septal defect after surgical closure of atrial septal defect.


We describe residual atrial septal defects in 3 patients who had previous surgical repair. The residual defects were the sinus venosus type near the orifice of the inferior vena cava. Preoperative and intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography may aid in the detection and facilitate the successful repair of these defects.
