Breast Biopsy Gone Wrong

Romaguera Law Group, P.A. is pleased to report it recently settled a medical malpractice case involving a stereotactically guided biopsy of the breast.  This stereotactic breast biopsy was routinely performed and the records reveal hemostasis was easily achieved.  Sadly, however, nothing could be further from the truth.  The patient developed a profuse amount of bleeding hours after the procedure, and had to be seen in the nearest emergency department.

Luckily, the patient survived however underwent extreme pain and discomfort over the following several weeks relative to the need to pack and drain the chest wall.

A confidential settlement was reached with the interventional radiologist and the clinic.  Along with the settlement, the client demanded and received assurances that the procedures involved, especially in the aftermath of the stereotactic breast biopsy, would be altered to ensure this did not happen again.
