Typically, pulmonary valve […]

Ebstein anomaly

Ebstein anomaly Ebstein anomaly is a rare heart defect present from age of birth (congenital). If you suffer from this condition, the tricuspid valve is located not in the correct position, as well as the flaps of your valve (leaflets) are not formed properly. This means that the valve is not functioning correctly. It is possible that […]
