Thromboembolism

Thromboembolism following delivery

Success story

Nurit was 39 when she became pregnant for the second time. She developed problems with hypertension during the pregnancy, but delivered normally following inducement. After delivery, Nurit developed pain in the right calf and was diagnosed with a deep vein thrombosis (DVT). She alleged that she should have been prescribed effective thromboprophylaxis initially, which would have avoided that problem. PMS Expert Report concluded that the behaviour of the midwives and medical staff was clearly negligent. No risk assessment was carried out, and had this been done, Nurit would have been treated and avoided the DVT. The case was settled and Nurit received compensation.
