Clinic set­tles af­ter botched breast op


Bray People - - ABOUT GREYSTONES -

A WOMAN has set­tled her law­suit against a Kil­macanogue surgery for com­pli­ca­tions af­ter her breast en­large­ment.

Dun Laoghaire woman Kate Mur­ray (28) did not go to the High Court last week where it emerged that the mat­ter was set­tled for an undis­closed sum with costs awarded to Ms. Mur­ray.

She had sued Cosmedico Clinic as well as their former con­sulant Marco Loia­cono.

The Ital­ian con­sul­tant was barred from prac­tis­ing medicine in Ire­land in 2011 af­ter a fit­nessto-prac­tise com­mit­tee heard the case.

Ms. Mur­ray was left scarred af­ter the botched job. The Med­i­cal Coun­cil heard at the fit­ness-toprac­tise com­mit­tee that the Ital­ian sur­geon's treat­ment of Ms. Mur­ray was ‘reck­less in the ex­treme.'

She had her surgery in March 15 then suf­fered se­vere chest and ab­dom­i­nal pain.

She fi­nally had him re­move the im­plants on March 31 but on April 3 she was rushed to St Vin­cent's Univer­sity Hospi­tal suf­fer­ing from se­vere sep­sis on her chest, back and stom­ach, which doc­tors tes­ti­fied could have killed her within nine hours had she not been hos­pi­talised.
