Diagnostic Information
 
Final Diagnosis For Which Treatment Was Sought Including Patient's Actual Condition
William Klenk (then age 75) presented to Dr. Qamar as referred by his PCP on 02/21/13 for severe disabling claudication.
Operation, Diagnostic, Or Treatment Procedure Rendered Causing The Injury
From 03/06/13 through 06/10/14, Dr. Qamar performed atherectomy, ballooning, and stenting of the 70% right common femoral artery stenosis; and stenting of the 60% right external iliac artery, both with end results of 0% stenosis. On 04/24/14, the plaintiff continued to suffer from severe claudication-like symptoms in the left lower leg. Dr. Qamar attempted intervention of the 100% lesion of the right superficial femoral artery, but this was unsuccessful. Dr. Qamar administered Alteplase, a blood thinner on 06/10/14. On 08/22/14, the patient presented to the ER with complaints of left lower extremity pain. CT scan showed occluded left superficial femoral artery stents, and on 08/27/14, a left iliofemoral endarterectomy and patch angioplasty was attempted unsuccessfully. Since he continued to have no significant arterial flow below the left knee, he decided to undergo a left above-the-knee amputation on 08/28/14.The plaintiff alleged that Dr. Qamar failed to perform adequate lower extremity angiography or via referral to a vascular surgeon. However, a defense standard of care expert found that the patient suffered from a profound peripheral vascular disease. The expert further opined that it is very difficult to conclusively link the patient's amputation to Dr. Qamar's treatment because, given Mr. Klenk's underlying vascular issues, he likely would have needed the amputation at some point. Furthermore, the patient suffered from severe peripheral vascular disease and to leave that untreated would have been below the standard of care, but Dr. Qamar was working to re-vascularize the patient and unfortunately he suffered a recognized complication that resulted in the amputation.
