BACKGROUND The classification of clinical severity of Ebstein anomaly still remains a challenge. The aim of this study was to focus on the interaction of the pathologically altered right heart with the anatomically-supposedly-normal left heart and to derive from cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) a simple imaging measure for the clinical severity of Ebstein anomaly. METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty-five patients at a mean age of 26±14 years with unrepaired Ebstein anomaly were examined in a… CONTINUE READING
