Zoloft Birth Defect: Omphalocele

Posted on May 13th, 2011 No Comments

The birth defect omphalocele has been linked to the use of the prescription drug Zoloft during pregnancy.

Omphalocele is a congenital malformation in which the contents of the abdominal cavity protrude into the base of the umbilical cord. As the fetus grows during pregnancy, the intestines get longer and project from the abdomen. The growth takes place in the sixth to tenth week of pregnancy. Normally intestines would return into the abdomen by the eleventh week of pregnancy, but, if this fails, an omphalocele is present.

An omphalocele is covered by a clear sac or membrane which surrounds the umbilical cord. The sac may only contain a small loop of bowel or other abdominal organs. If the sac ruptures, the contents move through the opening of the abdominal wall.

If your child has suffered a birth defect after you used Zoloft while pregnant, please contact the Zoloft Birth Defect Attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-641-9810.
