Abstract

A 14-year-old female patient underwent surgical treatment of multiple atrial septal defects associated with unroofed coronary sinus and pulmonary valvar stenosis. One of the defects was that of the superior oval fossa and the other a large ellipsoidal defect positioned inferior to the inferior rim of the oval fossa. The patient underwent primary closure of the defects with a favorable result. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first surgical experience of an unusual atrial septal defect or the vestibular defect.
