Plaintiff, a 45 year old male, reported to a local emergency room when he experienced chest pain. An EKG and blood testing revealed that he had experienced a myocardial infarction, but had suffered no damage to his heart muscle. Plaintiff was admitted into the hospital for observation. His chest pain continued. Plaintiff'S physicians diagnosed him with pleurisy (an inflammation of the lining of the heart). In fact, Plaintiff'S chest pain was not from pleurisy, but rather from unstable angina due to blockage in his coronary arteries. The appropriate treatment for this condition was rapid stabilization followed immediately by coronary bypass surgery. Because of the misdiagnosis of pleurisy and the failure to timely intervene, Plaintiff suffered a myocardial infarction. The case was settled shortly before trial. (Confidential Settlement).
