Were You Injured During Laparoscopic Surgery?
Technological advances have allowed for the development of surgical techniques that minimize invasiveness. In the laparoscopic technique, surgeons are able to perform surgeries using miniaturized cameras and other tools that allow them to enter the body through small incisions. By making smaller entry points into the body, surgical goals such as the removal of a gall bladder can be achieved while avoiding the need for major entry incisions that require extensive healing.
Risks Of Laparoscopic Surgery
However, the benefits of laparoscopic surgery come with their own set of risks. Any inadvertent injury that is created — a blood vessel or organ could be nicked or perforated during the surgery. Without the visibility that comes from normal surgical procedures, the nick or perforation might go unnoticed and the surgeon may believe they can conclude the surgery. An internal wound that is left to bleed can cause serious problems including sepsis or loss of blood. Furthermore, other types of injuries can happen such as piercing of an unrelated organ.
If these injuries are not detected and are left untreated, the patient faces very real risks that could lead to death.
