Abstract

A 13-year-old female was admitted to our hospital with terminal heart failure. After 50 days of extracorporeal life support, she underwent orthotopic heart transplantation (OHT). The donor had no cardiac history. During the following days after OHT, the patient presented right ventricular failure with severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR). The decision to perform a tricuspid valve repair was taken after right heart catheterization and multiple echocardiographies. The diagnosis of Ebstein’slike anomaly was made based on intraoperative echocardiographic features and anatomical observance during surgery. This case illustrates that congenital cardiac defects must be considered when facing an important TR after OHT.
