Diversion of inferior vena cava (IVC) into left atrium (LA) is one of the rare complications of the surgical repair of the atrial septal defect (ASD). A 30-year-old male patient who had undergone surgical repair of the ASD 9 years ago was referred to our clinic because of diversion of the IVC into the LA. Surgical repair was performed by reconstructing the opening of the IVC and redirecting it into the right atrium.
