We report the unusual case of a 72-year-old woman with a primary presentation of right heart failure in the setting of recently diagnosed Ebstein's anomaly with concomitant atrial fibrillation (AF). The patient had New York Heart Association (NYHA) class III dyspnea for 12 months, with refractory right heart failure prior to undergoing surgical management in the form of a tricuspid annuloplasty ring and plication of the atrialized ventricle. The patient had an uneventful postoperative recovery and enjoyed an improvement in her exercise tolerance (NYHA class I) with minimal echocardiographic evidence of tricuspid regurgitation (TR) at the latest follow-up.
