Hi, thanks, ***** ***** your query, will be replying in few seconds please. DrVasavada
Ebstein's anomaly is mild in most adults who have it, so they don't need surgery. But sometimes the tricuspid valve leaks severely enough to result in heart failure or cyanosis. Then surgery may be required. Several different operations have been used in patients with Ebstein's anomaly, involving fixing of abnormal leaflet of tricuspid valve between two right heart chambers. Drugs have little role.
Chat is fine. Yes if you have congestive cardiac failure, you need measure of wall thickness, as high ejection fraction with wall being hypertrophic may not allow enough blood being pumped.
