Zofran Cleft Palate
Data suggests that cleft palate is twice as likely to occur in babies exposed to Zofran during the first three months in the womb. The National Birth Defects Prevention Study (NBDPS) published findings stating that women taking Zofran during the first trimester of pregnancy have a 2.37-fold increased risk of cleft palate.
What is Cleft Palate?
Cleft palate is condition in which a baby has a split in the roof of its mouth, which could involve its soft or hard palate, upper jaw bones, teeth and gums. Some children with clefts are never diagnosed but may have nasal-sounding voices due to the cleft. Cleft palate occurs in the first trimester when tissue fails to grow together to form the roof of the mouth.
Complications of Cleft Palate
Complications for feeding newborns could include difficulty attaching to the mother’s breast when breastfeeding. Other complications could also include trouble swallowing, ear infections, hearing problems, language development, missing teeth and more. Treatment plans for addressing cleft palate can be complex and may include surgery, orthodontic implants or bridges, typically recommended between the ages of 9-18 months.
