Distortion of septal and atrial anatomy in Ebstein's anomaly places the atrioventricular node and His bundle at risk for injury at operation. We present a novel technique for creating a robust neo-annulus, remote from conduction tissue, adding to the armamentarium of techniques available for the reconstruction or replacement of the tricuspid valve. Three cases are described. All the patients were in sinus rhythm, with competent native or bioprosthetic valves, at short-term follow-up.
