Abstract: A typical scimitar vein was surgically corrected in a female patient of 35 years old. The postoperative course was uneventful and in the first months after the functional capacity normalized. Six months after the correction, the patient developed progressive dyspnea. Kinking and distal stenosis of the intra-cardiac baffle which connected the scimitar vein to the left atrium were diagnosed. Balloon dilatation and stenting could normalize the blood flow through the baffle. The patient remains symptomless up to six months after the procedure. © 2012 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
