’Octomom’ doctor faces more allegations

The LA Times, July 14, 2010

The Medical Board of California has accused the Beverly Hills fertility doctor who treated octuplets mother Nadya Suleman of implanting too many embryos in another patient, causing the death of a fetus. Michael Kamrava, MD, implanted seven embryos in a 48-year-old woman identified as L.C. -- more than the medically recommended two embryos -- causing her to become pregnant with quadruplets, the board said. After complications with the pregnancy, the babies had to be delivered six weeks early by cesarean section. The mother lost one fetus during the pregnancy and another was born with “profound developmental delays,” according to a 20-page amended accusation filed June 30. “He placed L.C. at great risk … which was confirmed by a quadruplet pregnancy that ended with catastrophic results,” the document said.
