Ebstein malformation occurs in nearly 1/200,000 live births and accounts for 1 % of all congenital heart diseases. A right ventricular myopathy with varying degrees of failure of tricuspid valve delamination is present in all cases. Consequently, tricuspid valve morphology is highly variable and complex. These unique anatomic features have resulted in an enormous number of different repair techniques. Early results of the “cone repair” are encouragin and this repair represents the most anatomic of all repair techniques.
