Da Vinci Robot Lawsuit Lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC Disturbed by New Study Examining Risks and Benefits of Robotic Surgery Hysterectomy
Date:9/10/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) September 11, 2013

The Da Vinci robotic surgery lawsuit lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced defective medical device law firm, are disturbed by the findings of a newly-published study which indicate that #robotic surgery hysterectomies do not offer any additional benefits for most women. According to a report from Bloomberg News, the study published in Obstetrics & Gynecology is the second released this year to reach such a conclusion. “Unfortunately, the greater costs associated with robotic-assisted hysterectomy were not reflected in improvement in outcomes,” the authors of the paper wrote.

The release of the study also comes as Intuitive Surgical is facing more than 30 Da Vinci robotic surgery lawsuits that allege serious injuries due to the Da Vinci Surgical System. According to Bloomberg News, the Da Vinci robot, which is used in some 1,300 hospitals, has recently been associated with a rising number of adverse event reports, including at least 70 deaths that have been reported to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) since 2009.

According to Bloomberg News, the study published in Obstetrics & Gynecology involved an examination of records on more than 16,000 women who had hysterectomies for benign conditions in 2009 and 2010. For the most part, the study found little difference in complication rates between those who underwent a robotic surgery hysterectomy and those treated with more traditional methods. While women who underwent the robotic hysterectomies were somewhat less likely to need a blood transfusion, the risk of developing pneumonia appeared to double among robotic surgery patients. The research team noted that robotic hysterectomy often results in longer surgeries, with patients in a steep head-down position. This can cause a buildup of fluid in the lungs that requires intubation, which could account for the increased risk of pneumonia.

According to Wright & Schulte LLC, the last few months have been difficult ones for Intuitive Surgical, as it has endured a wave of adverse publicity that has helped to fuel concern about the safety of the Da Vinci robot. In May, the company released a warning about an issue with its EndoWrist Monopolar Curved Scissors, instruments that are used with the Da Vinci, which could cause surgical burns in patients. In July, Intuitive Surgical revealed that it had received an FDA Warning Letter after an inspection of its headquarters turned up several issues, including problems with the way it reported Da Vinci complications to the agency. That same month, the company announced a recall for some Da Vinci instruments that may not have been properly tested at the factory.
