Vascular Surgery Malpractice

Vascular surgeons perform extremely complex procedures. They must operate on blood vessels, and there is often a high risk to a patient undergoing such a procedure. Even so, they must provide a standard level of care. If a vascular surgeon, scrub nurse, or anesthesiologist makes a mistake, this may provide grounds for a lawsuit.

Examples of vascular surgery malpractice include:

These cases are complex and technical, but we have the experience, know-how, and resources to provide quality legal representation.

Vascular Infections

Vascular infections may occur when an artery or vein becomes infected by a virus, bacteria, or fungus. Grafts used to replace an artery or vein may also become infected. Because of its location, the infection will flow through the bloodstream, where it can cause serious illness. Such infections may occur soon after a replacement procedure or even years later.

Symptoms may include chills, fever, weight loss, and cloudy drainage from the incision site. Blue spots on the feet are another potential symptom. If you experience a vascular infection, you should seek medical care immediately.

You may also want to seek legal counsel if you’ve experienced a vascular infection. Queens medical malpractice lawyer David Kates can help if your case involves a failure to diagnose an infection, lack of preventative measures to prevent infection, surgical mistakes, and any form of substandard medical care.
