    This study aimed to investigate the reference point for the downward displacement of the posterior and anterior leaflets of the tricuspid valve using echocardiography in children with Ebstein's anomaly. This study enrolled 25 patients with Ebstein's anomaly. The extent of downward displacement...

    Unlabelled: Ebstein's malformation is a rare congenital cardiac malformation, accounting for about 0.5% of all congenital cardiac lesions. We report our experience with the anomaly as encountered at the Sudan Heart Centre from July 2004 to April 2005. Diagnosis was based on the...

    Abstract: Objective: If the pulmonary artery (PA) tree in patients with Fallot''s tetralogy (TOF) is extremely hypoplastic, a shunt procedure may be difficult and not desirable because of side-effects. Moreover, the failing catch-up growth of the pulmonary annulus is well known. In patients with...

    Objective: To study the effects of closure of interatrial communications associated with a right to left shunt in patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) who had a biventricular repair. Design: Retrospective study. Setting: Tertiary referral centre. Patients: 15 patients with CHD with right...

    A radionuclide angiogram in a patient with Ebstein's anomaly showed a very dilated right atrium with a minimally enlarged right ventricle and a normal sized left ventricle. This study led to the establishment of a definitive diagnosis by means of an echocardiogram. Late close of the tricuspid...

    Ebstein’s anomaly is a rare congenital heart defect. Associated lesions are uncommon, and the mortality rates can be as high as 54% during the first month of life. Two cases of severe Ebstein’s anomaly with ventricular septal defect are described. It is speculated that this rare...
