Misdiagnosed Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

A misdiagnosed abdominal aortic aneurysm is extremely dangerous and can often be fatal. If you feel that a doctor or caretaker’s negligence, ignorance, or omission may have played a part in the injury or death of a loved one, contact our team of experienced medical malpractice attorneys.

Understanding Misdiagnosed Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms

A misdiagnosed abdominal aortic aneurysm can be fatal. According to a 1988 article from the Annals of Vascular Surgery, researchers examined 134 patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) over a 10-year period. “All patients who had extensive diagnostic evaluation lasting more than 5 hours died… the only diagnostic procedure that definitively established aortic aneurysm in all cases was the CT scan.” Misdiagnosis for another condition, nephroureterolithiasis, was relatively common. In the case of AAAs, delay and misdiagnosis can be fatal. And many patients are, indeed, misdiagnosed.

If you recently lost a loved one due to a misdiagnosed abdominal aortic aneurysm, and if you suspect that medical malpractice – such as physician negligence, carelessness or omission – played a role in the death or injury, the Florida personal injury team at Dellecker, Wilson, King, McKenna, Ruffier & Sos, LLP may be able to help you.

“Son injured at Disney World. 8-year-old case resurrected at the 5th Court of Appeal. Dellecker Wilson saw the validity of and value in the case and through another two and one-half years realized a significant judgment for the injury sustained. This firm is nothing but highly professional, dedicated, diligent, compassionate and beyond reproach. Kudos to our team led by Ken McKenna. Doubtful there could be a smarter bunch of attorneys anywhere.”

According to a 1992 article in the Journal of Vascular Surgery, Misdiagnosis of Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: “ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm is a surgical emergency with a high mortality rate even when diagnosed and repaired immediately… the most common misdiagnoses were renal colic, diverticulitis, and gastrointestinal hemorrhage.” In this retrospective review of over 150 cases, 46 patients — 30% — were initially misdiagnosed by physicians. All that said, developing a potent medical malpractice case requires serious investigative work and legal resources. The team at DWKMR&S can customize a blueprint for your personal injury case.
