Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging findings in Ebstein anomaly POSTER PRESENTATION Open Access Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging findings in Ebstein anomaly Nelsy C González1*, Luis Muñoz2, Gabriela Meléndez1, Erick Alexánderson3, Sergio G Olmos1, Juan M Bonelli1, Aloha Meave1, Luis Marroquin3, Fernando Iñarra3, José E Telich-Tarriba3 From 15th Annual SCMR Scientific Sessions Orlando, FL, USA. 2-5 February 2012 Background In recent years, cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) ima- ging has emerged as the reference standard for cardiac imaging in patients with many forms of congenital heart disease, in particular for lesions that affect the right ven- tricle. Few studies have been published in assessment of Ebstein anomaly by CMR imaging. Methods CMR studies of patients with EA conducted from June 2007 to June 2011 were analized. Cine spin echo images in multiple views, and angiography were evaluated to assess chambers morphology and diameters, wall thick- ness and left ventricular function, also were measured the atrialized right ventricular portion and the func- tional tricuspid valve position. And Inversion Recovery sequence for determination of fibrosis. Results Ninety four patients were studied. Table 1 summarizes the main results. Tricuspid valve regurgitation was found in 96.9%, severe in 62. 5% of the cases. The pre- sence of left ventricle fibrosis was significant associated with right ventricle longest dimension including the atrialized portion (p=0.003), the diastolic and systolic diameters (p=0.011 and p=0.005). Conclusions CMR findings in EA were demonstrated. There was a clear positive relationship between the presence of LV fibrosis and the right ventricle dimensions.
