Dear Sir,

My wife underwent Total laparoscopic hysterectomy in M.P. and after 8 month of surgery she develop vault prolapse. I consulted the gynecologist about this complication but she said that it is a known complication and according to my doctor, total laparoscopic hysterectomy may be associated with an increased risk of vaginal vault prolapse. Because my surgery consent form has no where written that laparoscopy increasingly is used to replace abdominal hysterectomy, it is important to be aware of this complication of vault prolapse, so, I want that he should pay for compensation.

When I asked other gynecologist who is expert in prolapse surgery he said it will cost 1 lack 20 thousand rupees.

I am not in the position to pay that mush money to get repair the prolapse which occurred due to negligence of a gynecologist. Please let me know what should I do.

With regard

Vishwanath.

Again here it is important to consider that the incidence of prolapse, which required surgical correction following hysterectomy, is 3.6 per 1000. The cumulative risk increases with time, rises from 1% three years after a hysterectomy to 5% 15 years after hysterectomy. It is found in many literature that the risk of prolapse following hysterectomy is 5.5 times in women whose initial hysterectomy was for genital prolapse as opposed to other reasons. Some studies have reported an incidence of up to 43%. So there is no question that gynecologist should be punished for this complication.

If in consent form all the usual complication are not explained then there is a possibility of compensation.

Recently a senior gynaecologist is being sued for writing his patient name on to her removed uterus. The patient claims it as bizarre act. Utilizing a laser burning tool, was just a friendly gesture because the female patient was a good friend. However, Ingrid Paulicivic, a 47-year-old hairdresser from California, was not so impressed. She alleges the branding was done for no medically necessary purpose or reason which she somehow suffered burns on her legs as the uterus had been marked, based on her complaint.

So nowadays every act should be with patients permission.
