Is it possible for you to die from a mild case of ebstein's anomaly of the tricuspid valve?

Epstein's anomaly. Yes, it is possible. It can eventually cause right heart failure and even sudden cardiac death. It is very important to be followed by a cardiologist that specializes in adult congenital defects on a regular basis. It is highly variable though. Some patients have a normal life span without many if any symptoms. Http://my. Clevelandclinic. Org/services/heart/disorders/arrhythmia/Ebsteins-Anomaly.
