Complications of severe scoliosis

Scoliosis, or the medical condition where the backbone of a person is curved to either side, may result in serious complications if not properly treated.

Aside from the crooked physical appearance of the body, which can lower a person’s self esteem, scoliosis may cause chronic back pain if not treated. Difficulty in breathing and heart problems may also arise for people with severe scoliosis due to the rib cage squeezing the lungs and heart. Extreme scoliosis, in which the backbone curve reaches 100 degrees or more, may cause physical damage to the heart and lungs that can lead to pneumonia and heart failure.

Unfortunately, scoliosis is also a congenital defect linked to the use of the anti-seizure drug Depakote during pregnancy. If you or someone you know is currently suffering scoliosis due to Depakote use, discuss taking legal action against the manufacturer of Depakote with the legal team of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187 today.
