Cardio surgery claims

Cardio (heart) surgery claims

 

Duncan Lewis Clinical Negligence Solicitors – No win no fee Cardiac/Heart Surgery Claims

 

“It was a routine heart operation and it all went wrong…”

 

Advances in cardiac (heart) surgery mean that some procedures are now routine operations with every chance of a good outcome for the patient.

 

Heart surgeons can replace heart valves, perform a coronary bypass to repair damaged hearts – and carry out angioplasty procedures (percutaneous coronary intervention) to rectify obstructed arteries, with every expectation that the patient will recover well.

 

However, despite advances in heart surgery, patients do suffer injury as a result of medical negligence that could have been prevented.

 

Cardiac/heart surgery claims might involve just one adverse event which happened during surgery – or might be based on more than one factor in a heart patient’s treatment and care.

 

Duncan Lewis clinical negligence solicitors can advise patients who have suffered further injury as a result of negligent cardiac/heart surgery on how to make a no win no fee compensation claim – including heart surgery claims relating to:

 

  • Anaesthetic errors and mistakes
  • Angioplasty errors
  • Damage to heart valves (eg aortic valve)
  • Damage to blood vessels
  • Failing to monitor patient adequately in theatre (eg checking oxygen)
  • Failure to carry out cardiac tests (eg chest X-ray, blood tests, electrocardiogram, stress tests, TTT, NMS, Holter, cardiac catheters)
  • Failure to respond to patient complications (eg heart attack/stroke risk)
  • Hospital-acquired infection or wound infection
  • Human factors (eg failing to follow standard guidelines in an emergency
  • Infected/diseased/unsuitable heart transplant organ
  • Laparoscopic/keyhole surgery negligence
  • Misdiagnosis of heart condition
  • Poor pre-operative care (eg failures in pre-operative evaluation)
  • Poor post-surgical care.
