Compensation for heart man

24th October 2011

A patient has received a six-figure payout after the wrong side of his heart was operated on by surgeons at Bristol Royal Infirmary.

In a statement, the BRI said: "Technical errors during Mr Edwards' cardiac ablation procedure resulted in the catheter moving and radio frequency energy being delivered to the wrong side of his heart. Further checks have been introduced to ensure that the catheter is perfectly placed before radio frequency energy is delivered."
