Ebstein's anomaly: Introduction
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.
More detailed information about the symptoms,
causes, and treatments of Ebstein's anomaly is available below.

Ebstein's anomaly is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of
Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health
(NIH). This means that Ebstein's anomaly, or a subtype of Ebstein's anomaly,
affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
