Bladder Perforation during Hysterectomy and Malpractice

By Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP. posted in Medical Malpractice on Wednesday, December 21, 2016.

Hysterectomy is the second most commonly performed surgery, after cesarean section, for women of reproductive age in the United States.

Hysterectomy is the second most commonly performed surgery, after cesarean section, for women of reproductive age in the United States.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that from 2006 to 2010, hysterectomy was performed on 11.7% of women aged between 40 and 44 across the US Roughly 600,000 hysterectomies are performed in the country each year, and about 20 million women have had the procedure. By the time they reach age 60, over one-third of all women in the US have had a hysterectomy.

Hysterectomy and Bladder Perforation

Also known as cystotomies, bladder perforations are one of the complications that may arise when a hysterectomy is performed.

However, according to medical experts, this injury itself is not likely medical negligence or malpractice as it is considered to be a complication that comes with hysterectomy surgery. Nevertheless, you must be informed that the procedure comes with a complication that involves cutting a hole in your bladder accidentally.

So when is bladder perforation during hysterectomy medical negligence? It is more likely that bladder perforation is medical negligence if the surgeon did not see the perforation and ended the surgical procedure without informing a urologist to get the injury repaired. The standard of care requires that bladder perforations are identified during the procedure and the patient should still be under anesthesia when the repair is done.

The urologist can repair the perforation vaginally or through an open surgery of the abdomen. But no matter which technique the doctor uses, the urologist should be brought into the operating room to repair the injury. Even when the repair is done properly, there can be complications after the procedure.

You should bear in mind that complications like these do not necessarily mean that there was negligence on the surgeon's part. It is possible to have bad results without negligence.

Who is more at Risk for Bladder Perforation?

Bladder perforation is more common in patients of hysterectomy who have had previous surgical procedures such as C-sections and myomectomies. This complication is also more common in hysterectomies that are performed vaginally than in those that are performed through an open surgery.

If you have suffered or are suffering from complications brought on by bladder perforation while getting a hysterectomy that your doctor failed to identify and correct while a hysterectomy surgery was being performed, then there is a better likelihood that you are a victim of medical malpractice. In such a case, you should get an experienced malpractice attorney to conduct a thorough review of your medical records to determine if you have a viable case.
