This article summarizes the experience of surgical treatment in patients with Ebstein’s anomaly (Cone repair). Early echocardiography showed significant reduction of tricuspid insufficiency. The follow-up showed clinical improvement in a clinical condition in this patients, low incidence of reoperations, and no need for tricuspid valve replacement. Further studies and longer follow-up are required to evaluate the behavior of the tricuspid valve and right ventricle after this procedure.
