Heart Stent Procedures at Raleigh General Hospital during the Periods 2010 through 2013

Raleigh General Hospital is investigating patients who may have received unnecessary angioplasty or stent procedures at the hospital by Dr. Kenneth Glaser. The potential affected patients are patients who had a stent placed when “the condition may not have warranted that stent placement.” This would include stent placement procedures on patients whose blood vessels were not sufficiently occluded to require the procedures–patients had no significant heart blockages to warrant stent placement procedures, among other possibilities.

You or someone you know may have already received a letter from Raleigh General Hospital.  In that letter it is explained that the stent may not have been necessary.  Others who have not yet received a letter may also be effected.  There is an investigation being conducted which encompasses 2010 through 2013.

On September 24, 2013, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of West Virginia served a subpoena on Raleigh General Hospital for its investigations into certain unnecessary interventional cardiology procedures conducted by physicians in RGH’s cardiac catheterization laboratory.

If you have been involved in any procedure conducted by Dr. Kenneth Glazer at Raleigh General Hospital do not hesitate.  Call (800) 342-3106 and speak to an attorney at the Masters Law Firm in Charleston West Virginia for a free consolation.
