Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WILMINGTON - Young Conaway is currently investigating cases involving patients who underwent open-heart surgery at Christiana Care Hospital/Wilmington Hospital on or after January 1, 2012. According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the "CDC") and the United States Food and Drug Administration (the "FDA"), such patients may have a risk of bacterial infection known as Mycobacterium chimeraera. According to the CDC and FDA, symptoms from that bacteria may develop years after the open-heart surgery, and may include night sweats, fatigue, muscle aches, fever, and weight loss. If left undiagnosed, the bacteria may become untreatable and can be fatal.

Christiana Care Hospital/Wilmington Hospital is aware of several patients who have contracted the bacteria during open heart surgery that occurred on or after January 1, 2012. If you or a loved one has experienced any of these symptoms, the CDC and FDA suggest you seek immediate medical attention.

Our attorneys are available for a free consultation if you or a member of your family has experienced any of these symptoms. Contact us immediately at 888-395-7576 or complete our online contact form to get started.
