We performed a balloon pulmonary valvuloplasty in a child with Ebstein's anomaly using the standard technique. The procedure reportedly has not been performed in the face of this defect and, although difficult, was safely and successfully accomplished. In patients with Ebstein's anomaly and right ventricular outflow obstruction compounded by pulmonary valve stenosis, application of this technique may delay the need for surgical intervention.
