DOI : 10.31067/0.2019.188 Atrial septal defect is one of the most common congenital cardiac anomalies in adulthood. Advances in minimally invasive surgical approaches result in an increased use of these techniques in selected patients. Atrial septal defect closure with minimal invasive surgery through right anterior thoracotomy is one of the first chosen treatment methods with reliable results and high patient satisfaction especially in young ladies.

In this paper, we present the repair of sinus venosus defect with minimal invasive methods in a patient whom underwent breast reconstruction using a silicone prosthesis three years ago. The operation through right anterolateral minithoracotomy approach was successful and cosmetically uneventful even in the presence of a complex atrial septal defect and the silicone breast prosthesis in the surgical area.
