Principal Injury Giving Rise To The Claim
Several weeks post-op, patient complained of pain in her left calf.Insured appropriately ordered a venous ultrasound of the leg to rule out DVT, and the radiology report indicated there was no evidence of DVT.At the next visit, patient reported her calf pain was decreased.Insured never saw patient again; however, 11 days after her final visit with him, she suffered onset of severe chest pains.She was immediately taken to the ER but died shortly thereafter from cardiac arrest.An autopsy revealed death was secondary to pulmonary embolism.Plaintiff alleges improper treatment; however, our expert believes there was no deviation from the standard of care relative to the treatment of this patient.She was promptly referred for Doppler ultrasound imaging.In light of the negative venous ultrasound and patient?s lack of symptoms or risk factors, there was no need for insured to order any further diagnostic studies.
Severity Of Injury
Permanent: Death.
