Paxton had suffered from heart problems since childhood when he suffered from rheumatic fever, a disease that is known to cause heart valve disease.

According to CNN, Paxton's family said that Paxton was treated by a surgeon who "lacked experience" and did not tell the family that his heart surgery was "high risk and unconventional".

Bill Paxton's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and heart surgeon Ali Khoynezhad. It also claims Paxton began suffering complications after the surgeon left the operating room "without arranging for continuous care and coverage ... and failed to timely return to the operating room upon notification of the complications, causing a delay in treatment resulting in damage".

Paxton died on February 25, 2017 - 11 days after the procedure - and his family is seeking unspecified damages.

Tombe said B.C. does not have a legal leg to stand on, in its authority to restrict oil from Alberta. Notley later announced a province-wide ban on B.C. wine imports, effective immediately.

Paxton's family said that the inexperience of the surgeon and the misrepresentation of the risks contributed to the actor's post-surgery complications. The actor, 61, died of a stroke almost one year ago following a heart surgery for aortic aneurysm fix.

Paxton is survived by his wife Louise Paxton, his son James, and his daughter Lydia.

"State and federal privacy laws prevent us from commenting about patient care without written authorization", a statement said. But we can share the following: Nothing is more important to Cedars-Sinai than the health and safety of our patients. "These remain our top priorities".

"One of the reasons for our high quality is that we thoroughly review concerns about any patient's medical auto", the statement continues.

Attorney Steve Heimberg says in the release that Khoynezhad recommended that Paxton undergo surgery which the complaint contends was unnecessary.

The lawsuit comes just before the first anniversary of the death of Paxton, who played major supporting roles in the films "Apollo 13", "Titanic", and "Aliens", and starred in the HBO series "Big Love". Paxton family attorney Bruce Broillet had this to say.

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center responded the lawsuit by saying they are prohibited from discussing individual cases without clearances from the family.
