The number one cause of death in the United States is cardiovascular disease, or any disease affecting the heart or blood vessels. There are 1.5 million heart attacks every year in the United States, but thanks to medical advancements, only 500,000 of those heart attacks are fatal. There are many surgical procedures available to individuals suffering from cardiovascular problems, but when medical professionals make mistakes or are careless during these procedures, they can cause irreparable damage to an innocent patient.

Common Heart Surgeries
Hospitals perform many different heart procedures every day. Some of the procedures doctors consider “routine” are:
- Pacemaker Installation
- Cardioverter Defibrillator Instillation
- Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting
While these procedures can save a person’s life, or improve someone’s quality of life, they can also go wrong if a surgeon does not act responsibly. If you have suffered from surgical complications because of a medical professional’s mistake, it is important to hold the responsible individual accountable for the unnecessary pain and suffering he or she has caused.
