Treating infant craniosynostosis through traditional surgery

Infants who are born with craniosynostosis, or the congenital skull condition in which the baby’s brain natural growth is hampered due to premature closure of the joints of the skull, may be treated through traditional surgery.

To alleviate the pressure of the brain and improve the facial structure of the baby, an incision on the scalp and cranial bones of the baby who is under general anesthesia will be performed by a surgeon. The surgeon will then reshape the deformed portion of the skull. To maintain the correction, plates and screws that can be absorbed by the body are used.

A follow up surgery may be required for a baby with a deformed face to further improve the condition.

Unfortunately, craniosynostosis is a congenital defect associated with the use of Depakote by pregnant mothers during pregnancy. If you think your baby’s health issues were caused by Depakote, a lawyer from Williams Hart may be able to help you seek justice and compensation. Call 800-761-3187 today to learn more about your legal options.
