Title:
Right heart failure due to an unroofed coronary sinus in an adult. 
Abstract:
An unroofed coronary sinus is a rare congenital malformation with a strong association to a persistent left vena cava superior. In most cases it occurs together with complex cardiac anomalies such as left isomerism. We report on a 72-year-old man with clinical signs of right heart failure caused by an isolated unroofed coronary sinus: The diagnosis was made by means of transesophageal echocardiography with contrast injection.
