Aortic Stenosis

When taken while a patient is pregnant, Depakote can cause a wide range of serious birth defects that may permanently affect a child. While many of these involve the nervous system and the growth of the brain, a child’s heart and blood vessels can also be impacted by the side effects of the drug. As a result, a child may not have a fully functioning circulatory system, leading to complications throughout their life.

For more information regarding your legal options if your family has been affected by a Depakote-related birth defect, contact the Depakote attorneys of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187.

Symptoms of Aortic Stenosis

When a child’s heart develops properly, a valve located in the aorta helps the blood flow out of the heart to the rest of the body. Without this basic function, this flow out of the heart can decrease significantly, causing insufficient blood flow to various organs and systems. Because of a defect with this valve, known as aortic stenosis, the child may suffer the following symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Chest pains
  • Fainting
  • Breathlessness
  • Respiratory problems

In some cases, this birth defect can put the child at an increased risk of developing a heart infection. These infections may be fought with regular antibiotic treatments, although even these may be costly.
