A congenital heart defect characterized by downward or apical displacement of the TRICUSPID VALVE, usually with the septal and posterior leaflets being attached to the wall of the RIGHT VENTRICLE. It is characterized by a huge RIGHT ATRIUM and a small and less effective right ventricle.
The valve consisting of three cusps situated between the right atrium and right ventricle of the heart.
Myosin type II isoforms found in cardiac muscle.

Familial Ebstein's anomaly. (1/98)

A family is described in which both a father and son are affected with Ebstein's anomaly, while several other family members manifest different cardiac malformations. Five additional instances of familial Ebstein's anomaly were found in the literature and compared with our family. Inspection of possible modes of inheritance in this group of families suggests that Ebstein's anomaly is probably inherited as a polygenic character with a threshold phenomenon.  (+info)

The atrioventricular junctions in Ebstein malformation. (2/98)

OBJECTIVE: To review the anatomical structure of the right atrioventricular junction, including the specialised atrioventricular conduction system, in hearts with Ebstein's malformation, to identify potential substrates for the abnormalities in conduction. METHODS: Five heart specimens representing the morphological spectrum of Ebstein malformation were examined grossly and histologically. RESULTS: On the endocardial surface, the atrioventricular junction was marked by a faint line in two hearts, and by a small ridge in the other three. Analysis of the right parietal junction in four hearts revealed only two accessory muscular atrioventricular connections. A plane of fibrofatty tissue separated atrial from ventricular myocardium in the right parietal junction in all hearts. The compact atrioventricular node was closer to the coronary sinus than usual. Accessory nodoventricular connections were present in four hearts, while accessory fasciculo-ventricular connections were found in one. The right bundle branch was hypoplastic or absent in four hearts. CONCLUSIONS: In this small series, the parietal atrioventricular junction was better developed than previously thought. Structural abnormalities of the atrioventricular conduction system, however, were present. These may account for some of the conduction abnormalities frequently observed with the Ebstein malformation.  (+info)

Ebstein's anomaly--an autopsy study of 28 cases. (3/98)

Twenty eight autopsy specimens of Ebstein's anomaly were studied in order to evaluate the morphologic features of the abnormal tricuspid valve. All cases showed marked dilatation of the original tricuspid annulus, a normally positioned anterior leaflet and variable downward displacement of the posterior and septal leaflets. Sixteen cases showed a very large anterior leaflet. All three leaflets showed dysplastic features and a wide range of anatomic abnormalities in the valve and valve apparatus. A thin walled atrialised right ventricle was present in nine cases. Associated cardiac anomalies were seen in 21 cases, the commonest being an atrial septal defect (17 cases).  (+info)

Ebstein's anomaly with imperforate tricuspid valve. Prenatal diagnosis. (4/98)

Ebstein's anomaly is an uncommon congenital heart defect, with a prevalence of 0.3-0.5%. Its association with an imperforate tricuspid valve is an even more rare situation (less than 10% of cases). Prenatal diagnosis of this association by means of fetal echocardiography has not been reported. We describe here this association diagnosed before birth and confirmed after birth. The diagnostic potential and importance of fetal echocardiography during prenatal evaluation of cardiac malformations allows for adequate perinatal planning and management, with an obvious impact on morbidity and mortality.  (+info)

Classification of ventricular pre-excitation. Vectorcardiographic study. (5/98)

In a study of 45 cases of ventricular pre-excitation, 19 were classified as type A and 20 as type B according to Rosenbaum's criteria, which depend on the polarity of the major deflections in the right praecordial leads and not, as is commonly thought, on the direction of the delta vector. Six cases that could not be classified as type A or type B were termed intermediate. Vectorcardiograms were recorded from 29, and these showed a wide but continuous range of values for both the delta and the main QRS vectors in all three planes. Any classification based on these features must, therefore, depend on arbitrary quantitative data. Three patients in this series had associated right bundle-branch block. A review of the published reports on the association of pre-excitation and bundle-branch block failed to provide a rational basis for the classification of pre-excitation. It is emphasized that Rosenbaum's classification is empirical and its validity is questioned.  (+info)

Coronary artery stenosis after radiofrequency catheter ablation of accessory atrioventricular pathways in children with Ebstein's malformation. (6/98)

BACKGROUND: Complications concerning the coronary arteries that are directly related to radiofrequency catheter ablation procedures have not been reported in children. Coronary artery lesions, however, have been demonstrated after the endocardial application of radiofrequency current in young animals. METHODS AND RESULTS: Two boys with Ebstein's anomaly of the tricuspid valve developed clinically asymptomatic coronary artery stenosis after radiofrequency catheter ablation of right-sided accessory atrioventricular pathways with standard catheter technology. CONCLUSIONS: The complication of coronary artery stenosis demonstrates a substantial risk after right atrial free wall radiofrequency current application in children. The risk of late coronary alterations should be considered when the use of catheter ablation procedures to young patients is proposed.  (+info)

Right atrial reduction for tachyarrhythmias in Ebstein's anomaly in infancy. (7/98)

A 20-month-old girl with Ebstein's anomaly developed supraventricular paroxysmal tachycardia, which seemed to be a result of the wall tension of the giant right atrium. Right atrial resection reduced the wall tension and overall dimensions of the right atrium and finally resolved the tachycardia and ectopic electrical conduction. Six-year follow-up electrocardiograms confirmed continuing normal sinus rhythm without occurrence of supraventricular paroxysmal tachycardia or other ectopic electrical activity The follow-up echocardiograms showed the size of the right atrium to be unchanged from the time of operation. There are few data in the available literature about performing right atriotomy to resolve a tachyarrhythmia associated with Ebstein's anomaly and none, to the best of our knowledge, about performing right atrial resection for this purpose.  (+info)

Asymptomatic giant right atrial aneurysm. (8/98)

A 5-year-old asymptomatic boy was found incidentally, on a chest radiograph, to have gross cardiomegaly; further evaluation by echocardiography showed a giant right atrial aneurysm. The patient underwent successful surgical reduction of the right atrium, closure of an atrial septal defect, and tricuspid valve repair These measures were taken to prevent thrombus formation in the right atrium, prevent paradoxical embolism, and lower the risk of atrial arrhythmias. The morphologic features of the resected atrial tissue showed paper-thin wall with a central aneurysm and focal endocardial fibrosis consistent with a diagnosis of idiopathic dilatation of the right atrium.  (+info)

Ebstein anomaly is a congenital heart defect that affects the tricuspid valve, which is the valve between the right atrium and right ventricle of the heart. In Ebstein anomaly, the tricuspid valve is abnormally formed and positioned, causing it to leak blood back into the right atrium. This can lead to various symptoms such as shortness of breath, fatigue, and cyanosis (bluish discoloration of the skin). Treatment for Ebstein anomaly may include medication, surgery, or a combination of both. It is important to note that the severity of the condition can vary widely among individuals, and some people with Ebstein anomaly may require more intensive treatment than others.

The tricuspid valve is the heart valve that separates the right atrium and the right ventricle in the human heart. It is called "tricuspid" because it has three leaflets or cusps, which are also referred to as flaps or segments. These cusps are named anterior, posterior, and septal. The tricuspid valve's function is to prevent the backflow of blood from the ventricle into the atrium during systole, ensuring unidirectional flow of blood through the heart.

Cardiac myosins are a type of myosin protein that are specifically expressed in the cardiac muscle cells (or cardiomyocytes) of the heart. These proteins play a crucial role in the contraction and relaxation of heart muscles, which is essential for proper heart function and blood circulation.

Myosins are molecular motors that use chemical energy from ATP to generate force and movement. In the context of cardiac muscle cells, cardiac myosins interact with another protein called actin to form sarcomeres, which are the basic contractile units of muscle fibers. During contraction, the heads of cardiac myosin molecules bind to actin filaments and pull them together, causing the muscle fiber to shorten and generate force.

There are different isoforms of cardiac myosins that can vary in their structure and function. Mutations in the genes encoding these proteins have been linked to various forms of cardiomyopathy, which are diseases of the heart muscle that can lead to heart failure and other complications. Therefore, understanding the structure and function of cardiac myosins is an important area of research for developing therapies and treatments for heart disease.
