Abstract

Ebstein's anomaly of the tricuspid valve is characterized by a wide spectrum of severity. The condition involves more than a malformation of the tricuspid valve alone; a substantial portion of the right ventricle may be involved as well. Those patients presenting with symptoms in the first month of life represent a challenging group with a high mortality and uncertainty as to the best treatment options. In this review, the practical decision making process and the outcomes for neonates at one center are discussed.
