PMID:  12813386     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of Ebstein's anomaly as demonstrated by echocardiography and electrophysiological studies is discussed. In view of deterioration in tricuspid regurgitation and right ventricular dysfunction, successful surgical repair employing De Vega's tricuspid annuloplasty along with plication of the atrialised portion of the right ventricle is described. Intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography following the procedure revealed satisfactory repair and a significant decrease in tricuspid regurgitation. This simple technique appears to be effective in patients having anterior leaflet sufficiently large area and motion. Adequate long-term follow-up in a large series of patients is essential to confirm that it is also beneficial and durable.
