Anomalous left-sided vertical veins can be challenging to translocate in adults because of a small and difficult-to-expose left atrial appendage (LAA). Herein is reported an interesting surgical approach to facilitate vertical vein translocation and improve access to the LAA in an adult patient with severe aortic stenosis and anomalous pulmonary venous connection of a left upper lobe vertical

vein who underwent a Ross operation.
