Coronary heart disease (CHD) is potentially a very serious condition, causing
severe pain and even death. If a delayed diagnosis led to irreversible
progression of this condition, you may have a medical malpractice claim
against your doctor.
The Cleveland-based law firm of The Lancione Law Firm is one of the top
medical malpractice law firms in Ohio. We have a well-deserved reputation
for obtaining substantial verdicts and settlements for clients who suffered
needlessly due to medical negligence in diagnosis and treatment of CHD.
Proper Diagnosis Slows Progress Of Coronary Heart Disease
Coronary heart disease (CHD) includes a variety of painful, progressive
diseases affecting both men and women. CHD occurs when the coronary arteries
or blood vessels fill with plaque over several years, making it continuously
more difficult to carry blood and oxygen throughout the heart.
Proper, early diagnosis of CHD makes it easier to slow the progression
of the disease through diet and medication. As the disease advances, it
may become necessary to perform advanced surgery techniques such as coronary
bypass or insertion of a stent to enlarge the artery.
CHD may be misdiagnosed due to a failure to conduct proper diagnostic tests
or suggest preventative drug regimens or changes to lifestyle, or a failure
to consider a patient’s personal or family medical history.
Misdiagnosis of CHD may lead to later misdiagnosis of heart attack, which
can be fatal. The Ohio coronary artery disease attorneys are dedicated
to holding medical professionals accountable when their mistakes lead
to needless pain and suffering for you and your loved ones.
