This study will investigate Ebstein's anomaly, a congenital abnormality of the tricuspid valve of the heart and try to identify the genetic origins of the disease.
Adults and children 2 years of age and older with Ebstein's anomaly and healthy volunteers may be eligible for this study. Participants undergo the following procedures:
- Blood tests: Three tube of blood will be collected, with the total amount limited to about half a teaspon for each two pounds of body weight.
- Saliva sample collection: A small amount of saliva is collected by spitting into a sterile container.
- Oral (cheek) swab: Cells are collected from the mouth using a soft brush to swab the inside lining of the cheek.
- Electrocardiogram: The electrical activity of the heart is recorded using electrodes placed on the chest.
- Echocardiogram: Heart function is assessed using ultrasound.
