Valve defects: Ebstein’s anomaly

It is a congenital heart defect characterised by the tricuspid valve sitting lower than normal over the ventricular myocardium, caused by the corresponding atrioventricular ring. In this case, the right atrium greatly increases its volume and the right ventricle greatly reduces in size and lung flow is not sufficient.

Ebstein’s anomaly encompasses a wide range of defects characterised by different grades of displacement and adherence of the septal valve of the tricuspid valve to the right ventricle chamber. It is a very variable disease that may be severe or mild.
