Common Types Of Birth Injuries In Texas

  • Brain Damage

Vacuum-assistance delivery of babies has been linked to an increased risk of brain damage. Using too much force with the forceps during delivery might result in brain injuries, resulting in mental and physical disabilities for a newborn.

  • Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a disorder in which infants do not receive enough oxygen during delivery. The lack of oxygen to the cord may be responsible for this injury. Muscle stiffness, uncoordinated actions, and speech difficulties are all possible symptoms of cerebral palsy. Physicians must examine the infant’s airways for obstructions and may be responsible for medical negligence if it isn’t done properly.

  • Brachial Plexus Injuries (ERB’S PALSY)

Brachial plexus injuries occur when the nerves in the spine, neck, arms, shoulders, and hands are damaged. These accidents can occur during childbirth as a result of lengthy labor or birth difficulties that necessitate forceps or vacuums. The use of force during hand delivery may also result in a brachial plexus injury.

Partial or total paralysis, claw-like hands, and muscular contractions are all signs of a brachial plexus injury. Brachial plexus injuries generally respond well to treatment, with recovery taking between six months and one year in most cases. However, more serious outcomes can result in permanent disability.

  • Bruising Or Forceps Marks

Because of the trauma of passing through the birth canal, some infants may have indications of bruising on their faces or heads. Forceps might leave markings or bruises on a baby’s face and head during delivery. It’s possible that vacuum extraction babies will develop scalp or other skin injuries.

  • Intracranial Hemorrhage

Intracranial hemorrhage is the formation of bleeding inside the brain or in the space between the brain and skull. If left untreated, severe damage to the afflicted region of the brain might occur, resulting in cerebral palsy in children.

  • Spinal Cord Injuries

The complications of prematurity, as well as birth injuries and congenital anomalies, are among the reasons for spinal cord injuries in newborns. Spina bifida is a typical disability that affects one out of every 2,500 births.

  • Facial Paralysis

It’s possible that a newborn’s face has too much pressure applied to it during delivery, causing facial nerve damage. When forceps or a vacuum are used to extract the baby, facial paralysis is more prevalent. Facial paralysis can render the infant unable to control the damaged side of their face.

  • Broken Bones

The infant must pass through the birth canal during childbirth. This can put a great deal of stress on their bodies, causing them to break bones. The collarbone is the most frequently fractured bone in the body. Other bones that are particularly vulnerable to breaking include the legs and arms. Broken bones can also occur when the newborn is mishandled after delivery. While they are generally simple to heal, fractures occasionally go undetected by physicians, resulting in more serious long-term issues.

  • Oxygen Deprivation

Brain injuries can occur as a result of oxygen deprivation during delivery. If the doctor fails to keep an eye on the baby while it is being born or allows it to remain in the birth canal for too long, brain damage might be caused. The long-term effects of oxygen deprivation may include physical and mental impairments.
