Gynaecology / Hysterectomy

Ureteric injury

Damage to the urethra following hysterectomy

Success story

Nancy had a hysterectomy in 2006. Difficulties during the operation resulted in obstruction of her left ureter. She was readmitted to hospital, and underwent two operations over the next month to repair the damage. PMS Expert Report concluded that the particular nature of Nancy's uterus meant that doing the operation vaginally rather than abdominally was very difficult. Although not negligent, most Gynaecologists would have taken the abdominal approach in this case. Furthermore, the operation itself was done negligently, with insufficient care taken to avoid damage. The case settled, and, Nancy was been compensated for the excess operations, as well as the psychological trauma involved in the experience.
