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 valve was demonstrated. In addition prolapse of the tricuspid and mitral valves was documented. A tricuspid valve prolapse has never been reported in this condition.

    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...

    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...

    Increased lung uptake during exercise thallium 201 scanning denotes severe ventricular hypofunction. To assess whether there is any relationship between this finding and the stenosis of a single coronary artery, the authors studied 140 patients (age 57.5 ±12 years) with both exercise thallium...
