Da Vinci Surgical Robot Lawsuit News: Robot Maker Says Device Could Cause Internal Burns, Notes Rottenstein Law Group LLP
Date:5/10/2013

(PRWEB) May 10, 2013

Intuitive Surgical, maker of the da Vinci Surgical System, on May 10 issued an “urgent medical device notification” indicating that the robot could potentially cause internal burns to patients during surgical procedures, according to a CNBC report.* The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, which represents clients in da Vinci surgical robot lawsuits, notes that internal organ burns are among the alleged side effects from which plaintiffs have told the firm they have suffered.

The device notification, according to CNBC, says that “micro-cracks” in some monopolar curved scissors can cause leaks that “may create a pathway for electrosurgical energy to leak to tissue during use and potentially cause thermal injury.” In the notification statement, according to CNBC, Intuitive Surgical said that it had no evidence of any injuries actually caused by the micro-cracks.

“This is potential evidence that can be used in court to prove the serious alleged dangers associated with the da Vinci Surgical System,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP. “Medical technology can be a valuable part of a patient’s treatment, but a device must do more harm than good.”

In other da Vinci robot news, Intuitive Surgical is currently a defendant in a trial in Washington State in which it is accused of improperly training surgeons in the use of the surgical robot (Estate of Fred E. Taylor v. Intuitive Surgical Inc.; 09-2-03136-5, Superior Court, Port Orchard, Wash.). It is the first of about a dozen da Vinci lawsuits in the United States to go to trial, according to Bloomberg.** Intuitive Surgical asserts that it is fully committed to superior training opportunities for surgeons and surgical teams in the use of its products, but notes that it does not participate in determining when a surgeon is adequately prepared to operate using the da Vinci Surgical System. According to USA Today, the da Vinci surgical robot was used in about 400,000 surgeries in 2012.***
