Did Your Doctor Fail to Diagnose Your Heart Defect?

There are many different types of congenital heart defects. Some of the most common heart defects include:

  • Aortic or pulmonary valve stenosis
  • Atrial septal defect
  • Atrioventricular septal defect
  • Coarctation of the aorta
  • Ebstein’s anomaly
  • Patent ductus arteriosus
  • Pulmonary atresia
  • Single ventricle anomaly
  • Transposition of the great arteries

Not every case of death or injury due to a congenital heart defect is due to medical malpractice. Sometimes a health care provider can do everything he or she is supposed to do and still not discover a heart defect in time to treat it. However, if a doctor failed to diagnose your heart defect despite observable symptoms, failed to order appropriate tests or failed to properly interpret test results, you may have a case of medical negligence.
