Isolated anomalous drainage of the left pulmonary vein to the left innominate vein is a rare variant of partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection. Here, we describe 2 adult patients with this variant who underwent successful robotic totally endoscopic repair with anastomosis of the pulmonary vein to the left atrial appendage.
