We present a rapid two-stage Starnes procedure for a seriously symptomatic neonate with the prenatal diagnosis of Ebstein anomaly. At 16 hours after birth, we performed an emergency operation consisting of main pulmonary artery ligation, plication of the right atrial and right ventricular wall, modified Blalock-Taussig shunt, and patent ductus arteriosus ligation, without cardiopulmonary bypass. At age 12 days, we then performed the Starnes procedure using a glutaraldehyde-treated autologous pericardial patch with a 4-mm fenestration to close the tricuspid valve orifice. The infant's postoperative course was excellent. A rapid two-stage Starnes procedure is useful for treating a seriously symptomatic neonate with Ebstein anomaly.
