Da Vinci Robot Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Comments on New Study Findings that Casts Doubt on Robot-Assisted Hysterectomy
Date:9/10/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) September 10, 2013

As da Vinci robot lawsuits (http://www.davincisurgery-lawsuit.com) continue to be investigated by Bernstein Liebhard LLP on behalf of patients allegedly injured by the da Vinci Surgical System, the Firm notes that a new study has raised doubts about the purported benefits of robot-assisted hysterectomy. According to Bloomberg.com, the research, which was released by the journal, Obstetrics & Gynecology, found that robotic hysterectomy is not associated with reduced rates of complications, and may even double a patient’s risk of developing pneumonia. The study involved data from about 16,000 women who had hysterectomies for non-cancerous conditions in 2009 and 2010.*

“We continue to receive da Vinci lawsuit inquiries from individuals who allegedly suffered serious injuries during a da Vinci hysterectomy or other robot-assisted procedure. This study is a reminder that the risks and benefits of this technology need further evaluation,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free da Vinci surgery lawsuit evaluations to individuals who allegedly suffered serious injuries in procedures involving the da Vinci Surgical System.

According to Bloomberg.com, the Obstetrics & Gynecology study is the second released this year to conclude that robot-assisted hysterectomy offered patients no added benefits. The release of the study also coincides with mounting concerns about the safety of Intuitive Surgical Inc.’s da Vinci Surgical System, which is increasingly used to perform hysterectomies, prostatectomies, and other soft-tissue procedures. In June, NBC News reported that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) had received more than 200 reports of da Vinci patients who suffered burns, cuts and infections since 2007, including 89 that involved patient deaths. In January, the agency launched a survey of doctors to determine if the increase was related to a problem with the technology. ** In July, Intuitive Surgical received an FDA Warning Letter that cited the company for, among other things, failing to properly report certain adverse events and device corrections to the agency.

In July, Intuitive Surgical disclosed that it had been named in 33 da Vinci surgery lawsuits filed in various state and federal courts that allege use of the robot caused patients to suffer serious, and in some cases fatal, injuries. According to the company, it entered into tolling agreements to stay the statute of limitations in some of these cases, “in an effort to provide an orderly process for evaluating claims before they result in costly litigation.” ***

Patients who experienced serious complications in da Vinci hysterectomies or other procedures that utilized the da Vinci Surgical System may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other injury-related damages.
