Surgical Mistakes During Aortic Aneurysm Causes Permanent Damages


Litigation Type - Hospital Negligence

Client Injury - Disfigurement

Our 65 year old client needed repair of a large abdominal aortic aneurysm.  His surgeons attempted repair using an endovascular prosthesis despite his less than favorable vascular anatomy for this approach. During the attempted repair, the prosthesis migrated and totally occluded the right renal artery and partially blocked the left renal artery.  This caused the surgeons to convert to an open surgery to prevent permanent harm to the kidneys and required a different repair of the aneurysm; all of which resulted in a very long surgical procedure.  The significant surgical time led to significant bowel edema, delayed surgical closure and multiple subsequent surgeries.  Our client recovered but was left with permanent abdominal weakness and disfigurement. Paul Schweiger obtained a settlement from the health care provider's insurer in the amount of $225,000.
