Abstract

BACKGROUND: Ebstein's anomaly represents a congenital structural deformity of the tricuspid valve associated with a wide spectrum of morphologic and physiologic abnormalities. Valvuloplasty and tricuspid valve replacement are the main surgical treatments. Plication of the atrialized right ventricle and valvuloplasty of the tricuspid valve can achieve satisfactory clinical results. Two surgical techniques, known as Danielson's and Quaegebeur's methods, are often used clinically. This study was conducted to compare the postoperative results between both methods in treatment of Ebstein's anomaly. METHODS: Valvuloplasty of tricuspid valve and the plication of atrialized right ventricle were performed in 8 out of 17 patients with Ebstein's anomaly in our hospital from January 1986 to August 1996. Danielson's method was used in six of eight patients, and Quaegebeur's method was used in the remaining two patients. There were three males and five females, aged from 8 months to 61 years (mean: 14.1 years). RESULTS: All patients achieved clinical improvement in cardiothoracic ratio and heart functional class. Cardiac arrhythmia was the likely cause of death in two patients treated by Danielson's method, and one patient developed complete atrioventricular (A-V) block postoperatively. By Quaegebeur's method, all patients survived, but a permanent pacemaker was implanted for both patients due to their preoperative complete A-V block. CONCLUSIONS: Both methods achieved satisfactory postoperative results. However, Quaegebeur's method seems to be more effective because it provided a simultaneous reconstruction of both tricuspid valve and right ventricle without the need for additional excision of the right atrium.
