Surgical Errors Archives

Heart attacks, stroke a risk after noncardiac surgery

A study published in JAMA Cardiology shows that those who undergo noncardiac surgery may develop complications that lead to heart attacks, stroke and even death. New York residents who are hospitalized for non-heart-related surgery will want to know what's involved in this trend; after all, more than 300 million noncardiac surgeries are performed worldwide every year.

Doctor sued for removing woman's healthy kidney

New York readers know that all surgeries come with risks. Unfortunately, one of those risks can be the surgeon who performs the procedure. For example, an Iowa woman has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against a South Dakota doctor for allegedly removing a healthy kidney during a botched surgery.

What to do after surgical errors

New York residents who undergo surgical procedures might be victims of surgical errors. When this occurs, it is important that the patients understand why the error occurred, how the surgeon can correct the errors and injuries and what legal steps should be taken.

Failed back surgery syndrome causes, symptoms, treatments

Patients in New York who are suffering from new and chronic pain following spinal surgery should know that they may have what's called failed back surgery syndrome. Patients who are suffering from the after-effects of neck surgery are also said to have FBSS.

The medical errors a patient could experience

For the most part, surgeries and other procedures done in New York and throughout the United States are relatively safe. However, there is always a chance that a doctor or other medical professional can make a mistake. According to one study, the wrong person was operated on at least 25 times over a period of 84 months in Colorado. Assuming that the right person is being treated, it is possible for a patient to receive the wrong blood.

When gallbladder surgery leads to injuries

In an estimated 1 percent of all gallbladder operations, patients come away with some form of injury to their bile duct, the organ that leads bile from the liver to the gallbladder. Those in New York who are suffering from bile duct injuries should know that these could have resulted from malpractice.

How durotomy factors into malpractice suits

Durotomy refers to a tear in the dura mater, or outer membrane, of the spinal cord and is often a consequence of spinal surgery. While these dural tears are often inevitable, they can usually be detected and repaired in a second surgical operation, leaving patients with no long-term problems. On the other hand, dural tears often form the basis for medical malpractice suits in New York and elsewhere in the U.S.
