ABSTRACT
The association of Ebstein's malformation of the tricuspid valve with persistent left superior vena cava draining into the left atrium is described in a 23-year-old Caucasian female. The spectrum of the congenital defects associated with these two anomalies is reviewed and the importance of excluding the concomitant presence of the rarest congenital defects with either of these two anomalies is stressed, particularly when the combination has significant surgical implications.

    Background: Ebstein anomaly of the tricuspid valve is a congenital cardiac malformation characterised by downward displacement of the attachment of the septal and posterior leaflets of the tricuspid valve. Canine tricuspid valve malformation (CTVM) is morphologically similar to Ebstein anomaly;...
