Four cases of Ebstein's anomaly are described, revealing that the clinical features permit diagnosis in the majority of instances and that cardiac catheterization affords precise confirmation of the diagnosis. The occurrence of this anomaly in acyanotic adults is pointed out, and the similarity to acquired valvular rheumatic heart disease is stressed.

OBJECTIVE To identify the incidence of left heart abnormalities in patients with Ebstein anomaly, recognizing that left-sided lesions in this patient group have been overlooked. PATIENTS AND METHODS According to the echocardiography database at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn, 106 consecutive patients with Ebstein anomaly underwent echocardiography between July 1, 2001, and February 28, 2003. Clinical data as well as electrocardiographic and echocardiographic reports and images were reviewed....

Abstract Exercise intolerance in Ebstein's anomaly is usually attributed to desaturation secondary to right-to-left shunting as a result of a small or distorted left ventricle (LV), significant tricuspid valve regurgitation, right ventricular dysfunction, or a combination of these. We observed one boy (age 15 years) and two women (ages 20 and 29 years) with severe Ebstein's anomaly and strikingly abnormal LV myocardium resembling the features described for LV noncompaction. LV size and systolic ...

Objective To determine the indications for and spectrum of late reoperations in adults who had previously undergone coarctation repair. Patients and Methods We reviewed clinical, cardiac catheterization, and echocardiographic data and criteria for reoperation, surgical procedures, and outcome in 43 patients who underwent 54 reoperations between 1972 and 1996. Results Of the reoperations for recoarctation or associated cardiovascular disease (or both), 20% were performed in asymptomatic patients ...

We evaluated the effect of atropine on the heart rate (HR) response during treadmill exercise echocardiography. A potential limitation of treadmill exercise echocardiography is the requirement for postexercise imaging. Rapid recovery of HR and wall motion abnormalities may decrease test sensitivity. A double-blind randomized study was performed at a tertiary care center. Fifty-two patients (age, 63 ± 9 years) with known or suspected coronary artery disease were injected with either 0.5 mg of atr...
