Diagnostic Information
 
Final Diagnosis For Which Treatment Was Sought Including Patient's Actual Condition
Extensive, long segment of arterial dissection (from the proximal cervical segment of the L. internal carotid artery as far as distally as the skull base at the level of the carotid canal). Very poor antegrade flow in the L. carotid artery was also present.
Operation, Diagnostic, Or Treatment Procedure Rendered Causing The Injury
Deployment of four (4) overlapping, self-expanding, nitinol stents from the skull base to the level of the carotid bulb. When a subsequent control angiogram indicated a continuing flow problem beyond the most distal stent, an additional angioplasty was performed on the remaining problem segment of the L. internal carotid artery. Two hours later, patient exhibited signs of a reperfusion injury. Patient underwent an emergency craniotomy and hematoma evacuation with persistent hemiparesis and functional decline afterwards.
Diagnostic Code : 
Misdiagnosis Made, If Any, Of Patient's Actual Condition
Alleged unwarranted and/or improper performance of a L. carotid stenting procedure in response to signs of ischemic stroke, and alleged failure to provide proper informed consent in stenting procedure and risks of hyperperfusion injury. Plaintiffs further alleged that a perforated vessel by a micro-catheter caused a bleed.
Principal Injury Giving Rise To The Claim
46 YOM presented to ER with complaints of slurred speech, tingling to the right hand, difficulty formulating thoughts, and left ear pain/dizziness and signs and symptoms of ischemic stroke. Subsequently, patient was found to have severe occlusion of L. distal internal carotid artery. Medical intervention did not relieve signs and symptoms of ischemic stroke, surgical intervention was ruled out; when signs and symptoms persisted, patient then underwent endovascular stenting procedure that restored blood flow. However, the restored blood flow resulted in hemorrhagic stroke--a known risk of the procedure
Severity Of Injury
Permanent: Grave - Quadraplegia, severe brain damage, lifelong care or fatal prognosis.
