Stent Problem Allegedly Causes Second Heart Attack

A patient from Cook County has initiated a malpractice lawsuit against his heart surgeon, alleging malpractice arising from his surgery

Cook County Circuit Court records indicate that Arshad Muhammad filed a lawsuit on September 1st naming Swedish Covenant Hospital, Dr. Muhammad A. Saudye and Shifa Cardiology Consultants as defendants in the suit.

The complaint states that on November 26, 2013, after Muhammad was admitted to Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago for a heart attack, Dr. Saudye performed heart surgery on the plaintiff. The surgery included angioplasty, catheterization and the deployment of stents. Muhammad was discharged from Swedish Covenant Hospital on November 28th, just two days later.

On December 12, 2013, Muhammad suffered a second heart attack. Tests indicated that the stent inserted during surgery was insufficiently deployed; causing arterial blockage to form that was the cause of the second heart attack.

The plaintiff is seeking damages in excess of $50,000, which includes compensation for a diminished capacity to earn a living.
