David Ward and Pankaj “PK” Shere won a defense verdict for a trauma surgeon in a case involving a splenic bleed and ultimate death. The plaintiff alleged the surgeon failed to timely take the decedent to surgery. The surgeon elected embolization via vascular interventional radiology to treat the splenic bleed resulting in blood transfusions going into the patient’s abdomen rather than vein. The patient coded, was resuscitated, but later died.
