Six days after undergoing a successful endovascular coiling procedure to repair a basilar artery brain aneurysm, the 47-year-old plaintiff suffered a catastrophic complication and has been rendered comatose ever since October 29, 1999. Her husband and young daughter were the true plaintiffs in a case where the claimed economic damages exceeded $25 million.
