Medical complications linked to craniostenosis

Medical studies have shown a link between the use of Depakote during pregnancy and infants born with craniostenosis. For individuals or families who may be dealing with this disorder, it is important to understand the medical complications that can be linked to craniosynostosis. The condition itself is characterized by joints in an infant skull closing too soon. As these bones develop prematurely, pressure can increase inside the skull and cause the following:

  • Brain damage
  • Total vision loss
  • Seizures
  • Breathing problems
  • Speaking difficulties
  • Abnormal shape of the head

Some cases of craniostenosis can be fatal, and treatments will vary according to the severity of the condition. Surgery may be required to reduce the amount of pressure as the brain develops in order to normalize growth, and additional procedures may be needed to restore the natural appearance of the facial structure.

If your family has been impacted by the dangerous prescription of Depakote during pregnancy, contact the legal team at Williams Hart by calling (800) 761-3187 to learn how we may be able to help.
