Ebstein's anomaly

Ebstein Anomaly - adverse / teratogenic effect of bipolar medication (lithium) use in pregnant women.

Ebstein's malformation of the tricuspid valve is characterized by displacement of the septal and posterior leaflets of the tricuspid valve downward into the right ventricle (RV) to varying degrees. The portion of the RV proximal to the valve is called 'atrialized RV'. The anterior leaflet of the valve is usually normal but can be affected. The valve's annulus is normally located. The anatomy of the leaflets is variable and the chordal attachments are abnormal. -Yale School of Medicine

Ebstein's anomaly is a rare heart defect in which parts of the tricuspid valve are abnormal. The tricuspid valve is normally made of three parts, called leaflets or flaps. In patients with Ebstein's anomaly, the leaflets are larger and unusually deep in the right ventricle. The defect usually causes the valve to work poorly, and blood may go the wrong way back into the right atrium. The backup of blood flow can lead to heart swelling and fluid buildup in the lungs or liver.

【 Note : Will obviously cause pulmonary oligemia 】

Ebstein's Anomaly atrial septal defect, atrialized right ventricle, malformed tricuspid valve Associated with lithium exposure in 1st trimester

Ebstein's anomaly: displacement of tricuspid valve so that part of the right ventricle becomes atrialized: Risk factors include children born to women taking Lithium and those that have Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. Comes with ASD or PDA, of the time.
