In brief: Follow up

After sinus venosus repair continous cardiac follow up is needed.
Although rare there is a risk for an injury to the sinus node (the pacemaker of the heart) if a superior sinus venosus is repaired. Most patients will have associated anomalous drainage of pulmonary veins witch will be adressed at the time of surgery but has to be followed up for . Also other forms of rhythm problems may occur.
