anomaly

(əˈnɒməlɪ)
n, pl -lies
1. something anomalous
2. deviation from the normal or usual order, type, etc; irregularity
3. (Astronomy) deviation from the normal or usual order, type, etc; irregularity
4. (Astronomy) astronomy
a. Also called: true anomaly the angle between a planet, the sun, and the previous perihelion of the planet
b. Also called: eccentric anomaly the angle between the periapsis of a particular point on a circle round the orbit as seen from the centre of the orbit. This point is obtained by producing a perpendicular to the major axis of the ellipse through the orbiting body until it reaches the circumference of the circle
c. Also called: mean anomaly the angle between the periapsis of an orbit and the position of an imaginary body orbiting at a constant angular speed and in the same period as the real orbiting body
5. (Geological Science) geology
a. Also called: gravity anomaly a deviation from the normal value of gravity at the earth's surface, caused by density differences at depth, for example those caused by a buried mineral body
b. Also called: magnetic anomaly a magnetic field, for example one produced by a buried mineral body, that deviates from an expected or standard value, usually that of the earth's magnetic field

Background: Ebstein's anomaly (EA) has various spectrums in clinical and anatomic features.
6% were diagnosed only in the postnatal period, which is significant; 15% of the heart disease were congenital, of which 3 cases were Atrial Septal Defect, 1 case was Ventricular Septal Defect and 1 case was Ebstein's anomaly.
Violet was born last September with a condition called Ebstein's Anomaly, which affects one in 20,000 children.
In addition, male patients had more transposition of great arteries, Ebstein's anomaly, coarctation of aorta, and bicuspid aortic valve, and slightly more ventricular septal defects than females.
Only 1% of these patients are without other congenital anomalies (1) Commonly associated anatomic lesions include large atrial or ventricular septal defects, pulmonary stenosis, Ebstein's anomaly and single ventricle (2).
Of note, six case-control studies that measured the association between Ebstein's anomaly and lithium exposure found no link between the two.
For instance, Ebstein's anomaly is a heart defect that occurs in 1 in 20,000 births.
Pregnancy and labor are well tolerated in patients with uncomplicated congenital heart disease (CHD), atrial septal defect (ASD), ventricular septal defect (VSD), patent ductus arteriosus and Ebstein's anomaly (3).
When the researchers analyzed data for adults separately, they saw declines in death rates from several congenital anomalies, including ventricular septal defect (60%), patent ductus arteriosus (87%), coarctation of the aorta (75%), and Ebstein's anomaly (55%).
This condition maybe isolated, or maybe associated with a variety of other abnormalities, such as congenital left or right ventricular outflow tract abnormalities (10), Barth's syndrome, Ebstein's anomaly, and bicuspid aortic valves (11).
Donald McRae, a South African-born author now living in England, has described in Every Second Counts the pioneering work of Walt Lillihei, Owen Wangensteen, Norman Shumway, Richard 'Dick' Lower, Adrian Kantrowitz, Chris Barnard and others in operating on the human heart, and correcting congenital heart disease such as Fallot's tetralogy, Ebstein's anomaly, transposition of the great vessels of the heart, and cardiac valvular disorders.
Jay was born with a rare defect called Ebstein's Anomaly which restricts the blood flow from a baby's heart to the lungs and is often fatal.
