Abstract

Severe Ebstein's malformation has a poor prognosis when diagnosed during the neonatal period. Surgical options that have proved successful in older patients have been associated with high mortality and morbidity in neonates. We report here our success with a policy of induction at term and immediate surgical intervention when Ebstein's malformation was diagnosed prenatally.
