Event Description

As part of a legal mediation effort on (b)(4) 2013 intuitive surgical received information regarding a patient who experienced post-surgical complications after undergoing a da vinci si hysterectomy for endometrial cancer on (b)(6) 2011. Per the information provided, there were no surgical complications experienced by the patient during da vinci hysterectomy procedure. Intra operative blood loss was reported to be 50cc. Reportedly, the patient's vaginal cuff was closed with running vicryl suture. Post operatively the patient had hyponatremia, which required some intravenous fluid hydration, but otherwise the patient did well and was discharged home in good condition. On (b)(6) 2011 the patient was seen by her doctor, and during her follow -up visit it was indicated that her vaginal cuff was well supported and intact with no tenderness. The patient was asked to follow up in with her doctor in six months. On (b)(6) 2011 the patient complained of vaginal pressure and she went to emergency room. The patient was not diagnosed with any significant issues and was discharged home with a recommendation of follow up. Allegedly, while on vacation, on (b)(6) 2011 while the patient was walking on the beach, she had an acute vaginal cuff dehiscence with prolapse of her small bowel to the knees. The patient was immediately rushed to the emergency room at a local hospital. On (b)(6) 2011 the patient underwent an emergency surgery for her condition. After being placed under anesthesia, the patient was manually reduced back to her intra-abdominal cavity, and the damage to her vaginal cuff was closed with interrupted vicryl sutures. Good hemostasis was noted. No other information was provided.
