Clinical Information

Persistent Left Superior Vena Cava - Finding of the SUPERIOR VENA CAVA on the left instead of the usual right side of the ASCENDING AORTA. In bilateral superior vena cava it is found on both sides.

Scimitar Syndrome - An anomalous pulmonary venous return in which the right PULMONARY VEIN is not connected to the LEFT ATRIUM but to the INFERIOR VENA CAVA. Scimitar syndrome is named for the crescent- or Turkish sword-like shadow in the chest radiography and is often associated with hypoplasia of the right lung and right pulmonary artery, and dextroposition of the heart.
