The center of your cardiovascular system is your heart. Your heart pumps blood to all of the cells in your body by way of your blood vessels. Blood is what transports the oxygen that your cells have to have.
Heart disease is a term that is used to refer to a group of diseases that involve your heart. These are diseases that take place when your heart and blood vessels are not functioning properly.
Ebstein’s anomaly is a congenital heart defect. Congenital refers to something that is present at birth.
Ebstein’s anomaly is a disorder that involves your tricuspid valve not working like it is supposed to. Your tricuspid valve is the heart valve that is located between the chambers on the right side of your heart.
Ebstein’s anomaly is evidenced by blood that leaks back through your tricuspid valve. Your heart does not function as effectively as it ought to when this happens. Ebstein’s anomaly may also cause enlargement of your heart or heart failure.
Ebstein’s anomaly is rare. Estimates are that the heart defect is present in around 1 in 20,000 live births, which means it is responsible for less than 1% of all congenital heart defects. It occurs most often in white people.
Several signs and symptoms may be an indication of Ebstein’s anomaly. These signs and symptoms can be anywhere from mild to severe and may progress slowly over a span of many years. Some of these include:
Failure to grow
Swelling of your legs
Shortness of breath
An extremely fast heartbeat or your heart pounding or racing
Cyanosis (a bluish discoloration of your lips and skin resulting from low oxygen)
Fatigue especially occurring with exertion
Heart palpitations or arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms)
A cause cannot be determined in most instances of Ebstein’s anomaly. However, the use of certain drugs, such as lithium during pregnancy, may have a part in bringing about this heart defect.
