Vascular surgery refers to treatment and surgery of disease of the arteries and veins in the body. Without treatment or surgery such disease can affect blood supply, causes blockages, result in dead tissue and sometimes lead to amputation.
Cardiac care is closely related to vascular surgery but is a separate area of medicine.
Our solicitors have extensive experience with all types of vascular claims and recognise that whilst some vascular problems occur for wholly natural reasons, they can also occur as a result of the failure to identify and treat such problems therefore it is crucial that medical professionals are swift and decisive in dealing with vascular problems, no matter the circumstances in which they arise.
The main areas of medical negligence claims related to vascular problems are as follows:
- Delay in diagnosis resulting in tissue necrosis and foot drop
- Failure to diagnose and treat compartment syndrome
- Fatal failure to diagnose aortic dissection
- Damage to nerves during surgery
- Failure to diagnose vascular problems results in delay in treatment
The most common types of vascular problems subject to medical negligence claims are:
- Damage to the blood supply
- Dead tissue
