Cor triatriatum sinister

How might cor triatriatum sinister be treated?

Treatment for cor triatriatum sinister varies depending on the symptoms. For patients with milder cases who are diagnosed much later in life, surgery may not be needed. In symptomatic patients, treatment may include diuretics, medications to change the force of the heart's contractions (inotropic medications), and medications to prevent clots from forming (anticoagulant therapy). Surgery, however, is considered the definitive therapy for those who are symptomatic. The overall life expectancy after surgical repair is expected to be similar to that for the general population.
