Recognizing Surgical Errors

If you are researching whether your doctor has made a surgical error because something went wrong during your surgical procedure, there is a good chance he or she did. Surgical errors can occur for various reasons and sometimes show no immediate signs of harm. One of the most common reasons for malpractice related to heart surgeries is due to improper technique during surgeries. Using improper techniques during heart procedures often cause significant injuries that can have long term effects on one’s overall health. In many cases, malpractice suits are initiated after medical professionals cause injuries when attempting to repair arrhythmias. Other errors include those associated with angioplasty and the insertion or removal of pacemakers. These types of errors often cause tissue damage, internal organ damage, or damage to the heart itself. In addition to some of the complications that arise because of complex surgical procedures, heart surgeons are also sued for some of the more common errors that are caused by overlooking some of the details. These errors include the failure to remove surgical equipment, wrong-site operation, or errors during incisions.
