• Cleveland Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorney: Mother Undergoes Mastectomy as a Result of Error

    Posted on August 19th, 2019 admin No comments

    One cancer misdiagnosis recently left a mother of two severely traumatized. At 28 years old, Sarah Boyle underwent a double mastectomy and chemotherapy before the Royal Stoke University Hospital realized it had made an unfortunate mistake.

    These kinds of stories are all too familiar for a cancer misdiagnosis attorney in Cleveland. Those who made the error must be held accountable for their actions.

    In this case, the results of a biopsy sample were incorrectly recorded.

    Increased Risk, Ongoing Trauma

    Sadly, Boyle now faces an increased risk of cancer because of the breast implants. She has also been told the treatment may affect her fertility.

    Boyle related the tragedy of her experience and the difficulties she continues to face as a result:

    “The past few years have been incredibly difficult for me and my family,” she said.

    “Being told I had cancer was awful, but then to go through all of the treatment and surgery to then be told it was unnecessary was traumatizing.

    “And while I was delighted when I gave birth to Louis, it was really heartbreaking when I couldn’t breastfeed him.

    “As if that wasn’t bad enough, I am now worried about the possibility of actually developing cancer in the future because of the type of implants I have and I am also worried about complications that I may face because of my chemotherapy.”

  • Birth Injury Attorney in Cleveland: New Study Finds Autism May Be Connected to Birth Injury

    Posted on August 5th, 2019 admin No comments

    Our understanding of the nature of birth injury continues to change, as our birth injury attorney firm in Cleveland can attest. And it continues to disclose new details.

    Here’s the latest. Autism could be added to the list of potential birth injuries, a new study suggests. Researchers have noticed that autism rates are higher in cases of premature c-section deliveries, suggesting a possible link.

    The Study

    Researchers at Neurochlore, Ben-Ari Institute of Neuroarcheology monitored brain size in ASD mouse models before, during and after birth. They published results in the journal, Science Advances, finding evidence that the birth process may play a role in the development of autism.

    Medical Express reports:

    “In looking at the images, the researchers found that the brains of normal mice stopped growing in size for a period of time prior to birth and remained at that size for a period after birth. They suspect the pause was to help the brain cope with the trauma of birth. In ASD mouse models, things were different, however—the brain was larger after birth (specifically in the hippocampus), suggesting its growth had not been suppressed during delivery and in the time shortly thereafter. They also found that administering the drug bumetanide to the mice before delivery prevented the abnormal brain growth from occurring.”

     

    It’s a finding our birth injury attorneys in Cleveland find interesting, to say the least. Birth is a very delicate process. There’s so much on the line when it comes to a child’s development.
