Radiographic Findings by Diagnosis: Other Congenital Abnormalities




Key Points





  • Congenital heart disease: other lesions




    • Ebstein’s anomaly



    • Cleft mitral valve






Ebstein’s Anomaly


See Figures 21-1 to 21-9 . Possible findings are discussed in the following sections.




Figure 21-1


Ebstein’s anomaly. There is cardiomegaly with prominence of the right heart chambers. The appearance of the main pulmonary artery is small.



Figure 21-2


Ebstein’s anomaly. There is cardiomegaly with prominence of the right heart chambers. The appearance of the main pulmonary artery is small.



Figure 21-3


In this chest radiograph in an infant, there is gross cardiomegaly, particularly of the right-sided contours due to Ebstein’s anomalies.



Figure 21-4


There is cardiomegaly with prominence of the right atrial contour, a small main pulmonary artery due to rotation of the heart due to Ebstein’s anomalies. The patient had previously undergone surgical repair of an associated atrial septal defect.



Figure 21-5


Ebstein’s anomaly. Note the marked right heart dilation, the raised apex, and the small pulmonary artery.



Figure 21-6


Chest radiographs and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR; steady-state free precession [SSFP]) images of a patient with Ebstein’s anomaly. Note the signs of right heart chamber enlargement, the raised apex, and the small pulmonary artery. The CMR images reveal the atrialization of the right ventricle, marked enlargement of the right atrium and atrialized ventricle, and tricuspid regurgitation.
