Women who take stop-smoking drug Zyban during pregnancy give birth to a child with birth defects

NewsGuard 100/100 Score

The Arentz Law Group is currently investigating cases of birth defects caused by the stop-smoking drug Zyban. Women who have taken Zyban while pregnant, and given birth to a child born with a birth defect, are encouraged to contact the law firm immediately for a free legal consultation.

An article recently published in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology showed that mothers who took Zyban during pregnancy had an increased risk of giving birth to a child with "left outflow tract heart defects". Left outflow tract heart defects affect the flow of blood from the heart's left chambers to the rest of the body. In this study, the most common type of this defect was coarctation of the aorta -- a narrowing in the body's main artery that, in children, typically requires surgical repair.

The experienced birth defect lawyers of the Arentz Law Group are now investigating the link between Zyban and left outflow tract heart defects, and are accepting Zyban Birth Defect Cases in all 50 states.
