Symptoms linked to ventricular septal defect

Children who have ventricular septal defect (VSD), a congenital defect of the heart, may experience potentially serious symptoms as their heart tends to work harder to transport blood containing oxygen from the lungs through different parts of the body.

  • Heart and lung infections
  • Irregular breathing or irregular heartbeat patterns
  • Unusual paleness of the skin
  • Weight problems

The problem is caused by the hole between the two chambers of the heart. VSD symptoms may vary depending on the size of the hole. Children or adults diagnosed with VSD may require surgery if the hole in their heart is big enough to cause fatal complications. Some VSD symptoms can be alleviated with medications.

Treating ventricular septal defect through surgery is often expensive. However, if this happens to you or to a loved one, a pharmaceutical lawyer may possibly help you get compensations if your congenital defect is caused by mothers’ ingestion of Depakote medicine during pregnancy. Speak with a Williams Hart lawyer today at 800-761-3187 to learn more about your options.
