Partially Unroofed Coronary Sinus: MDCT and MRI Findings.
Unroofed coronary sinus (CS) is a rare congenital cardiac defect defined as partial or complete absence of the partition separating the coronary sinus and the left atrium. Unroofed CS is often associated with other congenital abnormalities.
Unroofed coronary sinus defects are found near the os of the coronary sinus and are associated with a persistent left superior vena cava.

We report a case of unroofed coronary sinus in a six-month-old boy who developed cyanosis after surgical closure of ventricular and atrial septal defects. Clinical presentation, diagnosis, and management are discussed. Keywords unroofed coronary sinus, postoperative cyanosis. References. 1.

Unroofed coronary sinus is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly in which a communication occurs between the coronary sinus and the left atrium due to the partial or complete absence of roof of the.
Background: Unroofed coronary sinus syndrome (URCSS) is a spectrum of cardiac anomalies in which part (partial type) or the entire common wall (complete type) between the coronary sinus (CS) and.

Unroofed coronary sinus (CS) is partial or complete absence of the roof of CS (1-4), leading to a communication between CS and left atrium (LA). Unroofed coronary sinus syndrome (URCS) is the rarest type of atrial septal defect (ASD) (1). It comprises less than 1% of all types of ASD (5). URCS has also been described as “occult” left-to-right shunt given the difficulties with.
