Abstract

Surgical repair of the tricuspid valve is a milestone in the medical history of patients with Ebstein's anomaly. The timely alleviation of the insufficiency has an important impact on the prognosis. In this review, we describe features of the disease relevant to surgical correction and the evolution of surgical techniques over six decades. We compare the results of different repair and replacement techniques. Additionally, we discuss concomitant antiarrhythmic surgery and bailout strategies for postoperative right ventricular failure. Finally, we review the surgical options in symptomatic neonates with Ebstein's disease.
