Failed sterilisation

Failure of sterilisation during Caesarean section

Success story

In 2008, Sandy had a Caesarean Section in her fourth pregnancy. She requested female sterilisation at the same time, and this was carried out by tubal ligation. However, in 2010 she became pregnant. Sandy decided to terminate the pregnancy. She alleged that she was not advised of the risk of failure of sterilisation, and that the operation was performed negligently. PMS Expert Report could find no evidence of negligence in the operation, and noted that Sandy was clearly warned of a failure rate of the sterilisation procedure. The case was not pursued any further.
