Symptoms of Aortic Dissections
A victim of an aortic dissection may feel:
- Stabbing back pain
- A drop in blood pressure
- Waxing and waning overall pain
People that often present with these symptoms can easily be misdiagnosed by an emergency room physician/doctor or a general practitioner for any number of other conditions like a stroke because the common symptoms are so general. Also, people who have hypertension (high blood pressure) are at a greater risk for an aortic dissection so their physicians should be closely monitoring the patients' cardiac health. This is exactly why extensive testing and close monitoring must be done when patients show these common signs so an aortic dissection can be discovered and treated properly.
Take Legal Action with the Help of Freidin Brown, P.A.
If an aortic dissection is discovered, the aorta must be repaired through surgery. If a surgical error occurs during an aortic dissection or during a surgery for an unrelated condition, we can help prove this mistake. Unfortunately, a failure to diagnose an aortic dissection timely can be fatal and we will help you pursue a wrongful death lawsuit if this happens and your loved one was not treated properly.
We are here to stand by you and take care of your legal needs so that you can focus on your recovery or attend to your grieving family if you have lost a loved one to an aortic dissection. Our Miami misdiagnosis attorneys will aggressively negotiate on your behalf and will take your case to trial, if necessary.
