Failure to Treat Hypertension and Hyperlipidemia Lead to Coronary Artery Disease

Potential delay of nine years in diagnosis of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, which is scar tissue that forms in areas of the kidney that filter certain things out of the body. These areas of the kidney are called glomeruli. They help the body get rid of harmful or unnecessary substances. Each kidney has thousands of glomeruli. "Focal" means that some of the glomeruli become scarred, while others remain normal. Kidney disease often leads to hypertension and deranged blood lipid profiles. Both are well-recognized risk factors for atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Medical malpractice lawyers of Pittsburgh, PA, Rosen Louik & Perry represented the coronary artery disease malpractice claim. Our expert doctor opined that the doctor in question and associates' failure to properly treat the client's hypertension and hyperlipidemia contributed to the client's premature coronary artery disease. The client's underlying glomerulosclerosis caused the client's hypertension and lipid disorder. Had the client's renal dysfunction been appropriately managed, it is probable that the client would never have developed hypertension and/or an abnormal lipid profile. The case was settled for $750,000.00.
