BACKGROUND Ebstein anomaly (EA) is commonly associated with atrial flutter or fibrillation (AFl/F), which adversely affects outcome. Surgical ablation of AFl/F during surgery for EA has been shown to be effective, but the optimal lesion set remains unknown. METHODS Between 1995 and 2010, 86 patients had corrective surgery for EA and concomitant maze procedure for associated AFl/F. Median age at operation was 40 years (range, 1 to 72 years), and 49 patients (60%) were male. Preoperative AFl/F… CONTINUE READING
