Persistent left superior vena cava

DA: 203

Developmental anomaly information

Definition: In PLSVC, the left brachiocephalic vein does not develop fully and the left upper limb and head & neck drain into the right atrium via the coronary sinus. However, from a morphological point of view, the “anatomical” drainage of a persistent left superior vena cava is always into the coronary sinus.



Developmental anomaly parent: (empty)

Topology: Human body > Thorax > Mediastinum > Heart and great vessels > Great vessels

System: Human body > Cardiovascular system > Vessels > Veins

Developmental anomaly category: Anomaly of underdevelopment or overdevelopment
