The impact of Lecompte’s maneuver on superior vena cava (SVC) has never been mentioned before. We think that in certain anatomical subsets, Lecompte’s maneuver can result in superior vena cava narrowing. We present a case report of patient with Tetralogy of Fallot with absent pulmonary valve with retro-aortic innominate vein who developed SVC thrombosis after Lecompte’s maneuver.
