Removal of the wrong fallopian tube for ectopic pregnancy
Zoe presented on two occasions with right-sided abdominal pain and bleeding in early pregnancy. On the second time, she had a scan which suggested ectopic pregnancy. On the same day, her doctor did a laparoscopy and removed the left fallopian tube, as well as performing a right salpingostomy. This was despite the fact that her scan showed that that the left tube was normal whilst the right contained the pregnancy. Zoe alleged that her doctor was negligent in removing the left tube and, as a result of the right tube being blocked, she is now unable to conceive spontaneously.
