Pericardial patch augmentation of both anterior and septal leaflets in Ebstein's anomaly.

Author information

Cardiovascular Surgery Service, Goztepe Safak Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.


In Ebstein's anomaly, the aim of surgical intervention is the restoration of tricuspid valve competence. In some circumstances, however, paucity of the leaflet tissue precludes successful repair and negatively influences the long-term durability of the valvuloplasty procedure. We report a modified technique that provides satisfactory results for right atrioventricular valve function.
