Coronary sinus atrial septal defect is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly in adults. Patients with this anomaly are generally treated using conventional sternotomy or thoracotomy incisions. However, robotic surgery can be a feasible alternative in this anomaly. We report an adult patient, who presented with coronary sinus atrial septal defect. A totally endoscopic robotic repair was successfully done through a right atriotomy approach in this patient.
