Postoperative, patient initially did well but the following day began to worsen from respiratory status . He was transferred to the CVICU and then taken back to the operating room for presumed failure of aortic valve repair and recurrent aortic insufficiency. He underwent a successful re-operation, however unfortunately, several days later did not wake up and later expired. A lawsuit was file against the hospital and all the doctors involved in his care. I was on call the following day on the service and stayed with patient when change of patient's status was notified. All necessary services and actions were taken and primary surgeon, anesthiologist, consultants and operative team were called in for reoperation.
