Ebstein’s Anomaly — Mayo Clinic on Facebook

Mayo Clinic doctors have extensive experience treating Ebstein's anomaly. Mayo doctors trained in pediatric cardiology, adult congenital heart disease, congenital cardiovascular surgery and other areas work together in the Center for Congenital Heart Disease at Mayo Clinic's campus in Minnesota to treat adults and children with Ebstein's anomaly and other congenital heart diseases. The Center for Congenital Heart Disease is an international referral center for people with Ebstein's anomaly.

Staff in the Adult Congenital Heart Disease Clinic at Mayo Clinic provides care for adults with Ebstein's anomaly and other congenital heart diseases.

Mayo Clinic congenital cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons and others trained in treating congenital heart disease collaborate as a multidisciplinary team to provide coordinated, comprehensive care. This collaborative approach means doctors can often evaluate you and develop a treatment plan within two or three days.

Doctors at Mayo Clinic provide care for you as a whole person. Doctors take the time to get to know you and work with you to provide exactly the care you need.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

Mayo Clinic congenital cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons and other doctors evaluate and treat people with Ebstein's anomaly and other congenital heart diseases. This team will work with you to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your condition.

Cardiovascular surgeons have extensive experience and expertise treating Ebstein's anomaly and other congenital heart diseases with the latest surgical techniques.

Mayo Clinic cardiovascular surgeons have been at the forefront of developing and implementing surgical repair for Ebstein's anomaly for decades. The surgical team of cardiovascular surgeons, anesthesiologists and nurses has experience in the surgical and postoperative care of people with Ebstein's anomaly.

Mayo cardiovascular surgeons perform a newer form of tricuspid valve repair called cone reconstruction. In cone reconstruction, surgeons separate the leaflets of the tricuspid valve from the heart muscle. The leaflets are then rotated and reattached, creating a "leaflet cone."

Cardiovascular surgeons at Mayo Clinic's campus in Minnesota plan to offer robotic minimally invasive heart surgery to treat Ebstein's anomaly soon.

If the existing valve can't be repaired, surgeons may perform heart valve surgery to replace the tricuspid valve.
