PMID:  12238865     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report the case of a severely symptomatic neonate with Ebstein's anomaly. A modified Starnes operation was performed, but insufficient drainage of venous blood returning through thebesian veins caused overdistention of the right ventricle and severe left ventricular dysfunction. Urgent reestablishment of right ventricular-right atrial communication successfully resolved these problems.
