Ebstein anomaly

From WikiLectures

Ebstein anomaly is a congenital heart defect characterized by a change in the position of the tricuspid valve. The attachment of the septal tip of the tricuspid valve is shifted to the tip of the heart. This increases the right atrium and reduces the right ventricle, atrializes the right ventricle, the tricuspid valve is insufficient, a atrial septal defect occurs.

Auditory finding: systolic regurgitation murmur above the lower sternum from tricuspid regurgitation.

Therapy[edit | edit source]

The treatment of the defect is surgical. Its essence is the closure of the atrial septal defect and the replacement or plastic of the tricuspid valve.
