Anomalía de Ebstein

Es una afección cardíaca congénita que provoca una anormalidad de la válvula tricúspide. En esta afección, la válvula tricúspide está alargada y desplazada hacia abajo en dirección al ventrículo derecho. La anormalidad hace que la válvula tricúspide deje filtrar sangre hacia atrás dentro de la aurícula derecha.
