Abstract

The management of recurrent tricuspid regurgitation after tricuspid valve repair in patients with Ebstein anomaly is difficult, and tricuspid valve replacement is most commonly performed in such patients. We report two cases of recurrent tricuspid regurgitation in patients with Ebstein anomaly that were successfully re-repaired using the cone technique. The cone repair technique is a useful surgical method for reconstructing a competent tricuspid valve, and can be applied in patients who have undergone previous tricuspid valve repair.
