Hysteroscopy / Endometrial Ablation
Lost fertility as a result of endometrial ablation
Martha was 36 when she was referred to hospital, complaining of painful periods. She was found to have chronic pelvic inflammatory disease, and was treated by a Laparoscopic Bilateral Salgingectomy and Microwave Endometrial Ablation (MEA). She claims not to have been informed that the MEA would destroy the lining of her uterus, making pregnancy impossible. PMS Expert Report concluded that this treatment was negligent. MEA is usually only offered to women who have finished having their family. The suggestion of MEA seems to have been raised at the last minute in the pre-assessment clinic, and there is no record of Martha being made aware of the implications of the procedure. The case settled, and Martha was compensated.
