New York, NY (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
Alonso Krangle LLP, a dedicated law firm focused on fighting for the rights of people injured by harmful medical devices, notes that the litigation involving the Da Vinci Surgical System continues to grow in courts around the country. According to a report from NJ.com, for the first time, Intuitive Surgical, Inc. has been named in a Da Vinci robot lawsuit in New Jersey. The Da Vinci robot lawsuit complaint, which was filed in U.S. District Court, District of New Jersey last month, alleges that Intuitive failed to warn doctors that Da Vinci robotic surgery complications could occur as a result of electricity “jumping” from one of the robot’s arms into the patient’s body. The Plaintiff, a 45-year-old woman, claims she was left with severe abdominal pain and bowel problems due to such an occurrence. According to Alonso Krangle LLP, the allegations made in this most recent Da Vinci robot lawsuit echo those made in other recently-filed claims.*

The Da Vinci Robot Surgical System And Da Vinci Robot Lawsuits
The Da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic surgical device that is increasingly being used for hysterectomies, heart surgeries, prostate surgeries, and gall bladder and bariatric operations. In July 2013, Intuitive Surgical disclosed that it had been named in 33 Da Vinci robot lawsuits, all of which allege negligence on the part of the company resulted in serious, and in some cases fatal, Da Vinci injuries, including excessive bleeding, burns, tears, and perforations of organs, intestines, ureters, blood vessels and arteries. The Da Vinci robot lawsuits further allege that these Da Vinci surgery complications were the result of defects in robot itself, and/or inadequate doctor training by Intuitive.

Along with the growing litigation, the Da Vinci Surgical System has become the focus of increasing safety concerns. In January, for example, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) began surveying doctors to determine if an increase in reports of Da Vinci robot complications was a signal that there could be a problem with the technology. In March, the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology advised its members against the use of robotic surgery for most hysterectomy patients, due to its increased cost compared to traditional procedures, as well as a learning curve that may make Da Vinci robot complications more likely.

In May, the FDA uncovered a number of troubling issues during an agency inspection of Intuitive Surgical’s Sunnyvale, California headquarters. That inspection prompted the agency to issue a Warning Letter to Intuitive on July 16th that cited, among other things, problems with the company’s process for notifying the FDA of reported Da Vinci complications.
