Ebstein's anomaly

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.
