Expulsion of clip

Filshie clip causing damage by migrating and extruding

Success story

Cosette alleged negligence in performance of a tubal ligation procedure in 1996. Six years later after the procedure she developed an abscess in the wound which was persistent. Eventually a sterilisation clip was found in the wound, and the problem resolved. PMS Expert Report concluded that although Cosette suffered from a rare complication of tubal ligation, there was no evidence of negligence. This clips often become detached from the fallopian tube and migrate, and Cosette's case was an unfortunate consequence of this. The case was dismissed.
