ADDISON v. DEMIROZU, M.D.

The patient was referred by Dr. Demirozu to a surgeon for a procedure to remove excess tissue in the back of the throat and nasal cavity, which contributed to the patient’s sleep apnea, causing him hypoxic episodes and sonomulance. Post-surgery, the patient alleged he complained of leg pain which could be indicative of deep vein thrombosis. Dr. Demirozu testified that he was never advised of any such leg pain and that his examinations of the patient were normal and, further, that the patient was ambulating post-operatively which lessened the risk of lower extremity deep vein thrombosis. The patient ultimately did form such a clot which traveled to his lungs resulting in his instantaneous death. He left behind a wife and a son, and was employed as an executive in the transportation industry. The jury returned a defense verdict.
