OBJECTIVE Neonates with profound heart failure resulting from Ebstein anomaly have historically had poor outcomes. We report our institutional experience with the surgical management of Ebstein anomaly in severely symptomatic neonates. METHODS A retrospective review of all patients (n = 16) undergoing neonatal intervention for Ebstein anomaly between 1992(More)
BACKGROUND We have previously shown that neonates in profound cardiogenic shock caused by a severe Ebstein anomaly can be successfully salvaged with fenestrated right ventricular exclusion and systemic to pulmonary shunt (modified Starnes procedure). The long-term outcome of single-ventricle management in these patients is not known. METHODS We(More)
OBJECTIVES Neonates with Ebstein anomaly can have severe left ventricular dysfunction caused by right ventricular enlargement and ventricular septal displacement. Fenestrated right ventricular exclusion and Blalock-Taussig shunt (Starnes procedure) have been performed to mitigate this problem; however, the fate of the excluded ventricle and its effect on(More)
