Abstract

A 63-year-old woman was diagnosed with a giant atrial septal aneurysm (ASA) protruding into the right atrium and thrombus attached to the left side of the ASA pouch. We surgically resected the ASA, and the resection site was closed with pericardial patch. The postoperative course was uneventful.
