Abstract

The neonatal presentation of Ebstein’s anomaly is a distinct cyanotic lesion for which little can be done other than to maintain ductal patency or perform palliative surgery if improvement does not occur. We report two cases in which sildenafil was introduced to assist previously failed attempts at weaning of prostaglandin.
