    Don't know the case, I would (guess) it was "block" related.

    No details are given about the nature of the problem. How can we say who did or did not do something wrong?

    I guess, though, that they just went after anyone involved who might possibly be a deep pocket. And they won. Right? Wrong? Not sure.

    That lawyer certainly got a good pay day out of it as well. I'm sure he'll be writing the DNC a nice check in the next few months. I wonder if lawyers who make more money than physicians will ever be demonized?

    Sounds like the patient had a rare epidural hematoma and wasn't caught before permanent damage was done.

    A little more information on epidural hematoma after epidurals. http://www.anesthesia-analgesia.org/.../1/77.full.pdf

    I was going to guess that, before I saw your other link.

    Anesthesia et al. are implicated because they oversee epidurals.

    I know where I work, they are VERY anal about if and when patients receive Lovenox, etc, in relation to the placement and removal of epidural catheters. An anesthesiologist told me the other day that Lovenox is much more dangerous that straight up subq heparin in these situations, but I do not remember why?

    Lovenox has a longer half life than heparin making it anticogulation last longer
