Trends Cardiovasc Med. 2018 Aug;28(6):403-409. doi: 10.1016/j.tcm.2018.01.002. Epub 2018 Jan 12.


Ebstein anomaly is a congenital disorder of right ventricular myocardial development, which affects the tricuspid valve in addition to the right ventricular myocardium. Cardiac imaging by transthoracic echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging are the key modalities used to assess timing and type of surgery. In this article, we review the current standards of echocardiographic and magnetic resonance imaging in Ebstein anomaly.

Keywords: Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging; Congenital heart disease; Ebstein anomaly; Imaging: echocardiography.
