IPCCC Term INTERATRIAL COMMUNICATION THROUGH CORONARY SINUS ORIFICE
IPCCC Code 05.05.03
ICD-11 Code PENDING
IPCCC Definition A congenital cardiovascular malformation in which there is a communication between the left atrium and the coronary sinus allowing interatrial communication through the coronary sinus ostium.
Image #1 is viewed anteriorly demonstrating the septal surfaces of an opened right atrium and ventricle with a large coronary sinus orifice, acting as an interatrial communication. The oval foramen was restrictive with premature closure. Image #2 is a posterior view of the left side of the same heart. The left atrium and ventricle are hypoplastic and the pulmonary veins are normally connected. The typical horseshoe attachment of the flap valve within the left atrium is marked with red dots. There is a large interatrial communication at the coronary sinus. In this case the interatrial communication is not associated with a persistent left superior caval vein.
