Congenital heart defect causes and treatments

Prospective parents in Arizona might be surprised to learn that congenital heart defects, or structural problems in the heart, occur in more than 32,000 infants every year and are the primary cause of defect-related deaths. Affecting the different areas of the heart and how the heart functions, some defects include an Ebstein's anomaly, a tricuspid valve atresia, pulmonary valve stenosis and an aortic valve stenosis.

Fewer errors in Arizona hospitals and across the U.S.

Preventable errors in hospitals can unfortunately take lives and cost a lot of money, but methods designed by health care quality experts were used when compiling a report that indicates that there was a 17 percent decline in certain mistakes from 2010 to 2013. According to data from hospital medical records and other sources, the report concludes that around 50,000 fewer patients died because of the decline in preventable errors like drug mistakes, bed sores and infections.

Providing professional litigation pertaining to surgical errors

Located in the heart of Arizona, our law firm is dedicated to protecting the rights of people who have been injured because of a surgical error. We understand that surgery is a serious matter for anyone who must undergo one, and, in many cases, an individual's life depends on the skill of the surgeon to perform the surgery successfully. While hospitals should be places where people feel confident they will receive the care they deserve, surgeons should be medical professionals whom they can fully trust.

Stillbirths as a result of medical malpractice

Arizona individuals may be unaware that stillbirths occur in roughly 1 out of 160 births, and about 30 percent of the time, the cause is not known. The other two-thirds of stillbirths happen for a number of different reasons including birth defects, placental problems, infections, trauma and umbilical cord accidents. Individuals who have lost a baby due to stillbirth may wish to have an autopsy performed if they do not know the cause.

Erb's palsy treatments

Erb's palsy is a birth injury that affects the network of nerves that give movement and range of motion to the shoulder, arm, hands, and fingers. It usually results from difficult and prolonged labor, and the condition results in stiffness, weakness, and sometimes loss of motion in the affected arm. Based on national statistics, one out of every 1000 babies born in Arizona will be affected by this condition.
