LAPAROSCOPY LAWYER - MEDICAL MALPRACTICE INJURY COMPENSATION
Laparoscopy medical malpractice claims are increasing in number as the incidence of this procedure becomes more and more common. The laparoscope or endoscope is an instrument that resembles a thin telescope which carries a fibre-optic light system to enable a doctor to see inside the abdomen. The laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen through a small incision and carbon dioxide gas is then introduced to distend the abdominal cavity to enable the contents to be seen. The tools are subsequently inserted into secondary incisions and can be guided by the fibre optic camera that is already in place. The great advantage of this technique is the reduction in the time spent in hospital because only small incisions are required which results in less pain and a faster recovery period. An increasing number of problems that used to require major surgery can be dealt with using the laparoscope which ensures that many patients now leave hospital on the same day as their operation and can quickly resume normal activities.

The incidence of these procedures has substantially increased in recent years and has been accompanied by a similar rise in serious complications and fatalities. The main cause of laparoscopy medical malpractice arises on initial surgical entry intended for access for the camera. Most of the legal claims for compensation for personal injury concern damage to the bowel, injuries to blood vessels and the use of electrosurgery, which most laparoscopists utilize to coagulate, cut and dissect. A poorly executed initial entry procedure can, in addition to damage to organs and physical structures, lead to life threatening sepsis and peritonitis. The initial insertion of equipment is made blind and at that point there is a risk of unintended physical damage however there are established protocols and subject to unusual anatomy, any injury at this stage may have been caused as a result of medical negligence.
