Zoloft Birth Defects: Omphalocele

Posted on August 25th, 2011 No Comments

The use of Zoloft and other antidepressant drugs by pregnant women  have been linked to the Omphalocele birth defect.

This congenital defect occurs when the abdominal muscles of a fetus do not close properly. A newborn’s abdominal organs are seen outside of its abdominal cavity, only protected by a thin layer of tissue outside of the belly button area. This protrusion is known as a type of hernia which forms prior to the birth of the newborn.

Although the omphalocele defect is obvious after birth, prenatal ultrasounds can provide an earlier diagnosis of the defect. Then, surgery can be performed immediately after the birth of the newborn. To repair the abdominal cavity, a man-made material is used to push the intestines back into the abdomen by applying gentle pressure. Once everything is in place, the material is removed and the abdomen is closed.

If you used Zoloft while pregnant and your child has been born with omphalocele or another birth defect, contact the Zoloft birth defect lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-641-9810 today.
