    Abstract

    The most common variation in the thoracic systemic venous system is a persistent left superior vena cava draining to a coronary sinus. A rare anomaly is a persistent left superior vena cava connecting directly to the left atrium. In this situation it is believed that the coronary sinus must be absent. This report describes two cases of a persistent left superior vena cava draining to a left atrium with a normal coronary sinus.
