Medical Malpractice and Surgeons: Doctor botches defibrillator implant
A man has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against a hospital and one of the surgeons who performed his heart operation, reported the West Virginia Record in May 2008.
According to the suit, the doctor performed a surgical implantation of an automatic defibrillator into the man's chest Nov. 8, 2006.
The man claims that the physician failed to tuck the leads of the defibrillator behind it during the surgery, allowing the leads to remain too close to the incision.
According to the suit, the man experienced serious and permanent injuries; suffered permanent and significant scarring; suffered pain, nervousness, mental anguish, emotional distress and an impairment of the capacity to enjoy life both past and future.
He claims he has been left with a life-threatening medical condition, due to the doctor's negligence.
