Defense Verdict Biopsy Case
Miller v. Constantino and Epic Imaging, Multnomah County Case No. 17CV17556
Defendants saw plaintiff Miller for diagnostic testing related to a pelvic mass. Defendant Constantino performed six biopsies of the mass with an ultrasound-guided needle. Miller claimed that her ovarian artery was punctured during the procedure. She claimed that she was then discharged from Defendants’ care even though she was experiencing hemorrhagic shock. Miller alleged that she was required to undergo another procedure to repair the punctured artery. She sought $87,881.00 for past medical expenses and $859,000.00 for non-economic damages.
Defendant’s denied that their care was negligent and further denied that Miller’s ovarian artery was punctured during the procedure.
