Da Vinci Laparoscopic Hysterectomy LawsuitThe DaVinci robot is a highly complex remote controlled medical system. In 2000 the Food and Drug administration approved the daVinci Laparoscopic surgical system for general use in minimally evasive medical procedures. Since then the use of the daVinci method has been increasingly used in hysterectomy procedures across the country. It is estimated that between 40% to 50% of all hysterectomy procedures in the United States are performed using the Laparoscopic method. In many instances Laparoscopic medical devices fail or malfunction resulting in severe medical complications. Generally there are three distinct causes of action possible for victims of defective products in a product liability claim (1) Defect in the original design of the medical device (2) Defect in the manufacturing process which resulted in the final product being significantly different and as a result more dangerous than it intended design (3) Labeling defect, or a failure to properly warn users of the medical system of the danger associated with its use. Common dangers associated with botched hysterectomies: The most common adverse medical effects associated with hysterectomy errors include
- Post surgery infections
- Bladder injuries including bladder perforation
- Injuries to the uterine wall including the buildup of scar tissue
- Vaginal tearing and vault granulation
- Severe back pain and flank pain on the left of right side
- Internal bleeding
- Bowel injuries and punctured blood vessel
