Figure 1: (a) Chest X-ray reveals a curvilinear opacity (white arrow) that descends toward the diaphragm (Scimitar sign). (b) White arrow shows the SV in an axial section and (c) a sagittal view shows the descending SV in contrast-enhanced pulmonary computed tomography angiography. (d) Herniation of the diaphragm into the thoracic cage (black arrow) and compression and/or hypoplasia of the right lung. (e) Schematic drawing of the surgical procedure (author's own drawing [Koray Ak]). (f) Coronal view showing a patent extracardiac conduit 6 months after procedure. IVC: Inferior vena cava, LA: Left atrium, PTFE: Polytetrafluoroethylene, RA: Right atrium, SV: Scimitar vein, SVC: Superior vena cava
