Abstract
Ebstein's anomaly is a congenital defect primarily due to a failed-development of the tricuspid valve. The defect affects significantly surrounding structures (conducting tissue, right atrium and ventricle), which often need concomitant correction. We have extended our techniques for the repair of conventional atrio-ventricular valve insufficiency to this specific pathology. The video sequences show the repair of a severe form of Ebstein's anomaly with extensive mobilisation of the displaced leaflets and creation of a subvalvular apparatus with artificial chordae. Because of the absence of arrhythmia, the adjunction of ablation surgery to abnormal atrio-ventricular pathways was not necessary in this case and is not demonstrated in the videos.
