Event Description

According to the reporter: trocar penetrated the urinary bladder. The product was thrown away. The surgeon had a perforated bladder while performing a removal of adhesions and uterine cyst. We have not spoken with the surgeon as of today, however, the tech in the room during the case did provided this information. The surgeon had entered using our 5mm optical bladeless trocar through the umbilicus. She proceeded to place additional trocars under direct visualization, the last being an 8mm covidien bladeless trocar (nb8stf) in a suprapubic port placement. This trocar penetrated and went through the empty bladder. The case proceeded as normal until it came time for specimen removal. Once a 5mm applied bag was deployed and specimen was placed inside, the bag inserter was removed along with the trocar. At this time it was noted that the foley bag began to fill with air. Upon inspection, it was observed that the bladder had been punctured and once the 8mm trocar was removed the defects began to let air into the bag and urine into the abdomen. The bladder was then repaired and case was finished appropriately. It is unknown this time as to the current condition of the patient.
