New York Malpractice Attorneys Prosecute Claim of Undiagnosed Kidney Failure After Surgical Procedure

NEW YORK, New York, February 18, 2008 – Levy Konigsberg LLP premier New York malpractice attorneys, represented Annie Rose Noel, a part-time nanny, who suffered kidney injuries while recovering from a myomectomy at Bellevue Hospital Center in Manhattan. The original surgery was a myomectomy, a surgical removal of fibroids from her uterus. Due to the late diagnosis, she suffered complications that lead to hemorrhaging and had to undergo dialysis treatment.

Annie Rose Noel had laid in the hospital for over 12 hours untreated and misdiagnosed after recovering from a myomectomy. Approximately eight hours after being moved to the recovery room, it was determined that she was suffering from internal bleeding. The patient waited another three hours before the hospital decided to take Noel to interventional radiology to have her uterine arteries embolized, in order to stop the bleeding. It was determined that due to this extended period of time Ms. Noel sustained injuries to her kidneys and as a result of hypovolemia caused by the hemorrhage.

“It was the defendant’s lack of a timely diagnosis and failure of treatment of the internal bleeding that constituted malpractice,” said the medical malpractice attorney from Levy Konigsberg LLP. “The patient had signs while recovering from a myomectomy that the doctors and hospital missed, such as having very low or no urine production, low hematocrit levels, and fluid in her abdomen.”

Noel claimed that she developed hypovolemia, which is a decrease in circulatory volume, due to the extended period of time she was suffering from internal bleeding. Her kidneys did not receive an adequate amount of blood and fluid, causing kidney failure and required her to receive dialysis treatment three times a week, for approximately two years.
