New Cone Repair


There is just a handful of heart centers in the United States that performs the advanced and innovative cone procedure for repairing the tricuspid valve in children with Ebstein’s anomaly.

In this procedure, extra tissues on the enlarged right side of the heart are folded up, and the malformed valve is surgically reshaped into a cone. The cone-shaped valve opens to a central blood flow and closes with full coaptation (joining, reuniting) of the leaflets.

Tricuspid valve replacement: Sometimes a patient’s tricuspid valve is too malformed to be repaired. In this case, the existing valve will need to be replaced with a mechanical valve or a bioprosthetic one made of human or animal tissue.
