This single institution study retrospectively reviewed the outcome of pediatric Ebstein’s anomaly surgical correction. Of the 188 patients with a median (IQR) age of three years (1.6–5.6), 108 had cone reconstruction. Nearly 30 percent of patients required a bidirectional cavopulmonary shunt. Another 12 percent developed recurrent moderate to severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR). There was a lower incidence of recurrent TR in the group undergoing cone reconstruction. The age group of patients did not appear to affect the incidence of recurrent TR, reoperation, or death.
