Stent Lawsuit News
A recent report in the Baltimore Sun indicates that some doctors at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland and Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park may have implanted stents at a rate that is typically higher than the state of Maryland's average.
Statistics for hospitals in the State of Maryland indicate that on average patients were given cardiac catheterization about 35% of the time. At St. Joseph Medical Center doctors, in particular Dr. Mark Midei, gave cardiac catheterizations 46% of the time and at Union Memorial Hospital they were given 44% of the time.
The cost of an average cardiac catheterization is $14,000.00 and both hospitals took in about $760 million from patients between 2005 and 2010.
Coronary Angiography & Cardiac Catheterization
In most cases, before you received your stent or stents, a doctor called a cardiologist performed a coronary angiography. A coronary angiography is a test that uses a special dye and special x-ray to show the inside of your coronary arteries. The reason that doctors perform this test is a concern that too much plaque (plak) has built up on the walls of your arteries. A build-up of plaque on the walls of your arteries can lead to heart disease or heart attack.
To perform the coronary angiography, doctors perform a procedure called cardiac catheterization. This is the actual procedure by which the doctors insert a long flexible tube called a catheter into a blood vessel. Usually the catheter is inserted into your arm, groin, or neck. Once the catheter is inserted, the dye is injected into the blood stream. That dye is a special type of dye that is visible on an x-ray. That dye makes your blood vessels appear on the x-ray for review by the cardiologists. The procedure of cardiac catheterization is recorded by the hospital.
That recording is the evidence by which our doctors can determine if you received an unneeded stent. Our doctors will review your cardiac catheterization records from Union Memorial, St. Joseph, or Washington Adventist to determine if you received an unneeded stent.
A stent is a small mesh tube that is used to treat narrowed or weakened arteries in the body. An artery is a blood vessel that carries blood away from the heart to other parts of your body. An angioplasty is a procedure by which a cardiologist inserts a stent in an artery to allow the blood to flow more smoothly. A stent can also be placed to increase blood flow or prevent a artery from bursting. Stents are usually made of a metal mesh but some case they can be made of a fabric that allows blood to continue to flow.
The use of Plavix or Coumadin medication is usually prescribed to a person who has received a stent. The use of Plavix and Coumadin allows the blood to flow over the stent and prevent clotting around the stent. These medications can also have negative effects on other parts of the body such as an inability to stop bleeding from a cut.
