Settlement : 2/11/2015
Amount or Range: $925,000.00
Nature of Complaint: On 04/03/2012 the insured performed a right upper lobectomy and mediastinal lymphadenectomy to remove non-small cell carcinoma on this 70 year-old male. Post-operatively the patient complained of shortness of breath. In December 2012 a CT scan showed a large filling defect distal to the right main pulmonary artery, as well as an occluded right pulmonary artery. A VQ scan obtained on 12/17/2012 revealed no perfusion of the right lung. In April 2013 the patient was seen in consultation by providers at a CA facility who subsequently performed a right pulmonary endarterectomy after their attempt to reestabligh arterial vascularity to the right lung was unsuccessful due to fibrosis of the artery.
