Abstract

Ebstein's anomaly of the tricuspid valve in combination with Tetralogy of Fallot is extremely rare. We report a patient with these combined entities in a baby presented with cyanosis and right heart failure soon after birth. Total correction toward biventricular repair was successfully conducted when he was 7 months old. For management of a patient with such rare complex anomalies, we recommend Carpentier's technique for Ebstein's anomaly to restore the morphology of the right ventricle, and "one and half ventricle repair" can be a salvage procedure if the right ventricle is not functionally tolerant.
