As a doctor, he has been saying it again and again that it was not his mistake that a catheter balloon got burst at the time when he was conducting a surgery on a woman, who had a tear in her coronary artery.
Though the patient survived the surgery, the Medical Board has levied blame on him of being unprofessional. Keith Woollard, who is a cardiologist at Perth, said that he was also shocked to see that the balloon has busted during the operation.
"It was a unique event because of the trapping of the balloon. I had never seen such a case in all the years I have been doing angioplasties", said Keith.
The Medical Board has also said that they have got to know about information in which Keith inflated the balloon to 18 atmospheres, but the limit is 14 atmospheres. Keith said in his defense that he did not raise the atmospheres by more than 15. However, it is possible that he might have written wrong in the report, but that too by mistake.
Till now, no firm decision has been taken, and hearing will be taking place till the time, the court reach at a conclusion.
