Zoloft Birth Defects: Hypoplastic Heart Syndrome

Posted on July 21st, 2011 No Comments

The prescription drug Zoloft has recently been linked with a number of birth defects, including hypoplastic heart syndrome.

Hypoplastic heart syndrome is a variety of heart disease syndrome that is present at birth. The condition results in either the left or right structures of the heart to be underdeveloped, causing newborns to present a somewhat bluish coloration that can be observed in the chest, abdomen, lips and the tongue. The abnormal coloration is due to the inadequate levels of oxygen in the blood.

Hypoplastic heart syndrome affects either the right or left side of the heart. In Hypoplastic right heart syndomre, the development of the right sided structures of the heart is incomplete. The pulmonary asteria valve, which opens and closes to let blood flow to the lungs, is not present. The right ventricle in the lower chamber, which usually pumps blood to the lungs, can also be dangerously small.

If you were prescribed Zoloft while pregnant, please contact the Zoloft Birth Defect Lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-641-9810.
