Scimitar syndrome is a congenital cardiac anomaly characterized by anomalous venous drainage of the right lung into the inferior vena cava. We report the combination of scimitar syndrome and mitral regurgitation and describe port-access correction for the adult form by means of an intraatrial baffle combined with mitral valve repair. Related considerations and modifications required in the standard Heartport (Cardiovations, Somerville, NJ) technique are discussed.
