Cardiac Surgery Claims

Given the skill level of the UK’s cardiac surgeons, patients can rest assured that they are in some of the best hands there is in the world. However, no professional is exempt from human error, and when it does occur, the repercussions for patients are regrettable.

Where a surgeon has exercised poor judgement, causing avoidable suffering, or has been late to carry out surgery, which has lead to the victim’s condition deteriorating those affected will be entitled to make a cardiac surgery claim.

What is Cardiac Surgery?

Any surgery that involves the heart, lungs, oesophagus or surrounding blood vessels can be categorised as cardiac surgery. The aim is to prepare the damage caused by diseases or disorders of the cardiovascular system and includes an organ transplant.

Some examples of cardiac surgery include:

  • Transplants
  • Heart bypass
  • Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)
  • Heart valve operations – repair or replacement
  • Arrhythmia treatment
  • Aneurysm repair

Common injuries from Cardiac Surgery

Operating on delicate organs like the heart is extremely risky and so are only performed by highly-skilled cardiac surgeons. Currently just six sites across the UK are operational transplant centres, with only two dedicated to children’s transplants.

The complexity of these operations raises the stakes where complications are concerned and patients are vulnerable to a number of life-threatening complications, such as:

  • Cardiac arrest
  • Haemorrhaging
  • Damage to nearby blood vessels
  • Blood clots
  • Infections
  • Stroke

How to make a Cardiac Surgery Claim

Trying to cope with the ordeal of complications during cardiac surgery can be particularly difficult. Recovering from an operation of this scale requires a length of time with minimal stress – even harder still.
