The combination of type IB2 cor triatriatum and coronary sinus ASD is very rare in congenital heart condition. Up to present, only one case of IB2 cor triatriatum and thirteen cases of coronary sinus ASD were reported in Japan. In this combination, we have presented the first successful surgical treatment for type IB2 cor triatriatum (Lucas-Schmidt's classification), absent left innominate vein and coronary sinus ASD. The patient was a 52-year-old female admitted with chronic dyspnea. Echocardiography and cardiac catheterization revealed ASD, severe mitral regurgitation, cor triatriatum, left SVC connected to left atrium (accessory chamber) and absent coronary sinus. Under cardiopulmonary bypass she underwent surgical treatment which consisted of a resection of the intra-left-atrial diaphragm, closure of ASD with patch, mitral valve replacement with Omnicarbon #29 valve and ligation of left SVC. Her postoperative course was uneventful.
