I'm new here so please forgive me if this subject has already been blogged.
My pacemaker / de-fib wes implanted in Nov 2017. The leads are magnetic. Since that procedure, I have had the need for an MRI on two occasions (prostate and R knee). Unfortunately due to the magnetic leads, the MRI procedure could not be done thus the diagnosis and need for surgery has been impaire / comprimised. I know that non-magnetic lead pacemakers of the same make and model were available at the time.
Has anyone out there ever brought legal action against his cardiac surgeon et al, for neglect or malpractice in a similar case. Please advise. Thank-you.
