What to expect after craniosynostosis surgery

Since craniosynostosis surgery is a very critical operation that involves surgery on the infant’s skull, extreme care should be followed to ensure a proper recovery and to prevent any other complications from possibly arising.

After the surgery, the infant will have to stay for a couple of days at the hospital or surgical center where he or she can be monitored closely by doctors. Mild pain and swelling around the eyes is commonly experienced after the surgery for a couple of days. To ensure proper development of the skull, the patient will have to undergo a series of check-ups that may be scheduled every six weeks. Once the patient reaches the age of six, they may need to undergo annual check-up.

Post-omphalocele surgery

After undergoing omphalocele surgery, a baby should be taken care of properly to ensure quick healing and to prevent further infections or other medical problems.

After surgery, the baby may need to stay in the intensive care unit to keep the baby warm until he or she reaches the right temperature. For a while, mechanical ventilation will be used to help the baby breathe normally during the recovery process. Feeding the baby with the use of a nasogastric tube should take place when his bowel movement is already normal. The tube will also serve as a medium for other medicines he or she needs while recovering.

If you think your baby developed omphalocele due to the use of Zoloft while pregnant, you may be able to seek compensation from the manufacturer. Contact the legal team from Williams Kherkher at (888) 220-0640 to learn more about your legal options and how you might be compensated.


Repairing omphalocele through surgery

Omphalocele, or the congenital abdominal defect in which internal organs like the intestines and liver are located in a sac outside the abdomen, can only be treated through surgery.

Surgery is needed to place the organs back inside the body where they belong. Depending on the severity of the omphalocele, it can either be fixed right away or will need to be done later in the baby’s life. Typically, the operation will consist of a surgeon sewing a man-made material over the omphalocele, eventually allowing the omphalocele to be pushed back into the stomach.

Unfortunately, omphalocele is one of the many congenital defects  linked to the use of the anti depressant drug Zoloft by pregnant women. If you believe your child has omphalocele due to Zoloft use during pregnancy, contact a lawyer from Williams Kherkher at (888) 220-0640 to find out how you may seek compensation.


Treating Craniosynostosis

Craniosynostosis, a birth defect in which the skull of a baby grows abnormally due to the premature closure of one or several joints in the bones of a baby’s skull before its brain is fully formed, can only be corrected through surgery.

Depending on the case, Craniosynostosis surgery is usually done during a child’s infancy. A team of surgeons and specialists, often ones who specialize in head and face surgery, will work with a neurosurgeon to repair the skull structure and relieve the pressure on the baby’s brain. Through surgery, the brain of the baby should grow normally and his or her appearance will be improved.

Sadly, Craniosynostosis is a birth defect that has also been linked to the use of Zoloft by women during pregnancy. If you or someone you know thinks their child acquired Craniosynostosis due to the use of Zoloft, contact a lawyer at Williams Kherkher by calling (888) 220-0640. We may be able to help you pursue legal action and obtain much-needed financial compensation.


Anal atresia treatment

Unfortunately, anal atresia, or the birth defect in which there is no opening to or an obstruction of the anus, may only be corrected by surgical intervention. The exact nature of the surgery will vary depending on the severity of the anal atresia, whether it is considered low or high anal atresia.

After high anal atresia is detected in a child, a surgical incision in the large intestine and abdomen, called a colostomy, is made to temporarily provide a way to expel feces. After a couple of months, the intestine will be moved to the sphincter in the area of the anus and a hole will be made in the skin.

For low anal atresia, a surgeon will create a hole in the skin in the location where the anus is supposed to be. Additional surgery may be needed later on to reposition the path of the intestine if the hole is placed in the wrong spot.

Anal atresia is, sadly, a birth defect that is also linked to Zoloft use by mothers while they are pregnant. At Williams Kherkher, our lawyers work to help those who have unduly developed this defect. Learn how you may be able to obtain compensation by calling (888) 220-0640.
