Diagnostic Information
 
Final Diagnosis For Which Treatment Was Sought Including Patient's Actual Condition
symptomatic diverticulitis
Operation, Diagnostic, Or Treatment Procedure Rendered Causing The Injury
Dr. Klein performed an abdominal lavage with antibiotic washout for symptomatic diverticulits. A colonic leak was later identified, Mr. Hudon became septic, requiring a second surgery for a colostomy. It is claimed by Plaintiff that rather than initially performing the abdominal lavage, a definitive surgery to treat a perforated large intestine from a ruptured diverticula should have been performed. A defense standard of care expert supported Dr. Klein¿s decision not to perform a Hartmann (surgical resection and colostomy, the later primary anastamosis) based on Mr. Hudon¿s young age and her desire to avoid a bigger surgery and diverting colostomy in the face of an ¿angry¿ abdomen.
