Kidney transplant...and then anesthesia problems with another procedure to remove a cyst from his arm created the problem and put him in a coma...suit claims the anesthesiologist did not adequately review his medical history...BD 

Adriane Springs, the wife of former Dallas Cowboys running back Ron Springs, has filed a medical malpractice suit against an anesthesiologist and plastic surgeon who performed surgery on her husband.

Springs, who had been suffering from type 2 diabetes, underwent a kidney transplant in February 2007, with the organ being donated by his former Cowboys teammate Everson Walls, a donation that garnered widespread media attention. Springs' body responded well to the transplant, and he was taken off dialysis.
