Although refinement of tricuspid valvuloplasty and plication techniques has opened the way to a satisfactory outlook for the majority of patients with Ebstein's anomaly, paucity of tissue in the anterior tricuspid leaflet may preclude successful valve repair. In this particular circumstance, a modified Carpentier repair of the tricuspid valve with additional pericardial patch augmentation of the anterior leaflet may result in a well-functioning monocusp tricuspid valve.
