The importance of a persistent LSVC lies in a greater prevalence of other associated congenital cardiovascular defects and significant incidence of rhythm disturbances.
7) Suspicion of LSVC may arise on the posteroanterior chest x-ray, where it may appear as widening of the aortic shadow, paramediastinal bulging, paramedian stripe, or a lowdensity line along the upper left margin of the heart.
Persistent LSVC can be accurately diagnosed noninvasively by echocardiography in conjunction with Doppler and/or contrast ultrasonography.
Persistence of LSVC should be considered, especially when central venous catheterization via the left subclavian or internal jugular vein proves to be difficult, and the fluoroscopy or chest x-ray suggests an aberrant left-sided course for the catheter.
