Experienced Aneurysm Misdiagnosis and Late Diagnosis Attorneys – More Inside
A tear or a weak spot in a blood vessel can cause it to burst and wreak havoc in the body. This is what’s called an aneurysm, and it can either happen in the chest or abdominal cavity, or deep within the brain. In both instances, aneurysms, left untreated, can cause death in 40 percent of those that suffer them in just less than 24 hours. Therefore, it is vital that doctors not only diagnose aneurysms in a timely manner, but they also treat it via surgery immediately in order to save the patient’s life. Failure to do both constitutes medical negligence, something one can file a medical malpractice lawsuit for in order to recover money damages and seek justice, something we’d be more than honored to help you do.

The two types of aneurysms are:
- Aortic aneurysm: These are burst blood vessels that are closer to the chest cavity and the heart, and they may cause substantial internal bleeding.
- Brain aneurysm: Usually happens when a vital artery in the brain bursts and bleeds out into the brain.
Aneurysm Treatment – What are My Options?
In both cases, internal bleeding can cause tissue death, heart failure, strokes, loss of consciousness, coma and even death. When it comes to the treatment of aneurysms, doctors will surgically clip a problematic blood vessel in order to stop further blood loss via surgery. Alternatively, an endoscopic procedure that doesn’t involve any cuts involves the pushing of a wire inside a catheter via the patient’s groin, all the way to the location of the aneurysm, after which the wire is wound inside the blood vessel, causing a blood clot which then stops the bleeding and prevents further damage to said blood vessel.

Medical malpractice as it relates to the diagnosis and treatment of aneurysm requires that there be a duty of care between you the patient and your doctor, the breach of said duty via negligence, harm caused by said negligence, and the presence of quantifiable damages. In addition, it is vital to understand that such cases are difficult on account of the fact that a medical expert that is neutral must testify that your doctor went against an established standard of care, and that their negligence was the proximate cause of your injuries. These cases require that you retain the services of an experienced medical malpractice attorney and law firm, an area which McCready Law excels at.
