Vascular (Arteries and Veins)

 

Duncan Lewis Clinical Negligence Solicitors – No win no fee Vascular Claims

 

Vascular medicine involves the heart and lungs and conditions and diseases which affect the health of the circulatory system, including arteries and veins.

 

Vascular medicine is the specialty of cardiothoracic and vascular consultants and surgeons – who treat conditions such as varicose veins (VV), peripheral vascular disease (PVD) and abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) disease, as well as conditions affecting the heart and lungs such as a blocked artery to the heart, requiring a coronary angioplasty procedure.

 

Any damage to major arteries – such as the aorta, carotid artery, pulmonary artery and venous artery – during a surgical procedure can have life changing consequences for patients and may even prove fatal.

 

Tests for diagnosing disease in arteries include catheterisation, biopsy, MRS scan, CT-scan, angiogram and stress tests (increasing blood flow through arteries).

 

In cases where patients suffer injury as a result of negligent vascular surgery and treatment, Duncan Lewis clinical negligence solicitors can advise on making a no win no fee compensation claim, including vascular surgery claims relating to:

 

  • Amaurosis fugax (loss of vision due to blockage in retina blood supply)
  • Atherosclerosis (blocked artery as a result of cholesterol build up)
  • Coronary artery disease (atherosclerosis – may cause heart attack)
  • Carotid artery disease (atherosclerosis – may cause stroke)
  • Myocardial infarction (heart attack as a result of blood clot)
  • Peripheral artery disease (atherosclerosis in legs/groin)
  • Stenosis (narrowing of arteries)
  • Temporal arteritis (inflammation of temporal artery in the scalp)
  • Vasculitis (inflammation of one or more arteries).

  • Anaesthetic errors and mistakes
  • Angioplasty procedures (inserting a stent)
  • Catheterisation errors in vascular surgery
  • Drug allergies and mis-prescribing (eg aspirin, statins, anti-clotting drugs)
  • DVT negligence
  • Failure to respond to patient complications during surgery (eg stroke, heart attack)
