What is Ebstein's anomaly?

  • Ebstein's anomaly: A congenital heart defect where the tricuspid valve is deformed. The tricuspid valve in the heart normally has three flaps that control blood flow but in Ebstein's anomaly, one of the flaps remains open instead of closing and allows blood to leak through.
  • Ebstein's anomaly: Congenital downward displacement of the tricuspid valve with the septal and posterior leaflets being attached to the wall of the right ventricle.
