Atrial septal defect is one of the most common congenital heart anomalies in adults. Patients with partial atrioventricular canal defects, previously known as ostium primum atrial septal defect, usually present at an early age, and only a few reach adulthood without surgical correction. Herein, we describe a young woman who presented with an ostium primum defect and severe symptomatic mitral and tricuspid regurgitation with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. A complex repair was successfully done through a left atrial approach using robot-assistance.
