A 3-year-old boy suffered from the poor body weight gain under the diagnosis of partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) to the high portion of the superior vena cava (SVC) associated with ventricular septal defect (VSD) and intact atrial septum (IAS). Preoperative cardiac catheterization revealed the pulmonary to systemic flow ratio 2.6 and mean pulmonary arterial pressure of 21 mmHg. He successfully underwent surgical repair with Williams method using right atrial (RA) flap out and VSD patch closure. Postoperative course was uneventful and echocardiography demonstrated no obstruction at the both routes of neo-SVC and neo-right upper pulmonary venous return.
