5) Ebstein's anomaly, which occurs in less than 1% of all congenital heart defects and the most common cause of primary tricuspid regurgitation, (6) is an abnormality of the tricuspid valve.
Mothers with cyanotic congenital heart disease have higher incidence of fetal losses, preterm births and low weight neonates; however in Ebstein's anomaly it is considered that even without cyanosis, fetal morbidity is high with an increased incidence of congenital problems (8).
DISCUSSION: Ebstein's anomaly is a very rare congenital heart disease.
An option for a woman with bipolar disease who is taking an atypical antipsychotic is to switch her to lithium during pregnancy Even though lithium is a teratogen, we know that the absolute risk of having a child with Ebstein's anomaly after first-trimester exposure is about 1 in 1,000 to 1 in 2,000.
When a standard four-chamber view and outflow views with color flow Doppler imaging on all fetuses were used, anomalies that were consistently identified included hypoplastic left and right heart, single ventricle, tetralogy of Fallot, transposition of the great arteries, and Ebstein's anomaly.
However, the absolute risk of Ebstein's anomaly is estimated at 0.
Similarly many physicians don't prescribe lithium in the second and third trimesters because they are afraid of the risk of Ebstein's anomaly.

The report from the International Registry of Lithium- Exposed Babies almost 35 years ago estimated that the risk of cardiovascular malformations, most notably Ebstein's anomaly, associated with first-trimester exposure was increased by about 20-fold.
