Ebstein’s anomaly is a rare heart defect in which parts of the tricuspid valve are abnormal. Our surgical team has pioneered the best treatments for this defect, and has published extensive research on the condition. The graph above shows that from Jan. 2012 to Dec. 2015, children treated at Le Bonheur had a 100 percent survival rate. Newborns had an 83 percent survival rate, which is 11 points higher than the national average.
Why this is important: When it comes to treating Ebstein’s, our surgeons perform better than the national average in neonates and children. Great outcomes and experienced surgeons make us a great choice for Ebstein’s anomaly.
Le Bonheur’s Heart Institute measures quality using data compiled by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, or STS. STS gathers data from other top pediatric heart programs in the country, and publishes that information twice a year. This information helps us benchmark ourselves among other top pediatric heart programs.
