Equipment left in patient after hernia surgery

Posted on December 21st, 2011 No Comments

A female patient at a California hospital suffered extreme pain after a hernia repair surgery only to find out it was due to a device left inside her during the surgery.

The surgery took place this summer at St. Joseph Hospital where surgeons used a piece of equipment called a “FISH.” This object is used during surgeries to hold bowels out of the way of the area being operated on and is 10 inches in length and ranges in width, with the largest part being 6.5 inches.

The patient was undergoing abdominal hernia repair surgery when the object was left inside of her. This mistake caused serious harm and could have resulted in death if it wasn’ t caugh

t in time. A second surgery was necessary to remove the object from the patient’s body.

It is common for the material, AlloDerm to be used in hernia repair surgeries. This surgical mesh has been linked to numerous side effects. If you have suffered a side effect due to AlloDerm, please contact the AlloDerm lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 today.
