Clinical errors, and fatalities resulting from laparoscopy, commonly known as keyhole surgery, are becoming increasingly frequent in different surgical fields, as this procedure, which has more complications than open surgery, becomes more widespread. In addition to this, Da Vinci robotic surgery is a non-standard form of laparoscopy, and its use may also result in clinical failings. Keyhole surgery involves the use of a tiny camera which is inserted into the patient's body, so that the surgeon can perform the operation via watching a real time video on a monitor whilst using high tech surgical tool manipulation. If you have suffered injury as a result of a keyhole procedure call our laparoscopy negligence solicitors without delay.
The technique used in keyhole surgery necessitates initial “blind” surgical incisions into areas of the patient's body, so that a camera and attached cable can be inserted, followed by later insertion of tiny instruments through another incision which can manipulate, burn and cut the body's tissue. These procedures all present a risk. A slight lack of precision by the surgeon can result in extremely serious consequences for the patient. Further, if a patient's body has irregular anatomy, or is not typical, then the odds of serious issues occurring are increased.
Should a surgeon be derelict in their duty and fail to carry out initial insertion according to well established methods and principles and instead employs other methods which are not in line with regular protocols, then their actions may be considered to be negligent Which can lead to legal action for damages by laparoscopy negligence solicitors.
