Da Vinci Robot Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Says New Study Adds to Debate Surrounding Robotic Surgery
Date:11/27/2013

NEW YORK, Nov. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As Bernstein Liebhard LLP continues to investigate da Vinci robot lawsuits (http://www.davincirobotlawsuitcase.com/)  on behalf of individuals who suffered serious injuries, allegedly due to Intuitive Surgical, Inc.'s (Nasdaq: ISRG) da Vinci Surgical System, the Firm notes the release of yet another study that could contribute more to the debate currently surrounding robotic surgery.  The research, which was presented at the 42nd AAGL Global Congress on Minimally Invasive Gynecology in Washington, D.C., found that 30% of robotic surgery complications reported to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration's (FDA) Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience (MAUDE) database were related to operator error or robot failure. The study, which looked at events reported from 2006 to 2012, found that operator error was responsible for 21% of injuries, while 14% were caused by a technical system failure.

"This study sheds some more light on what might be behind some of the robotic surgery complications alleged in da Vinci lawsuits. Many of these lawsuits accuse Intuitive of failing to train doctors properly on the device. One important question is whether training issues may have contributed to the reports involving operator errors," 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 lawsuit evaluations to anyone who may have suffered serious injuries, including surgical burns, torn blood vessels, and organ perforations, in procedures involving the da Vinci Surgical System.

Da Vinci Robot Lawsuits

In its most recent 10-K report issued in October, Intuitive Surgical acknowledged that it had been named in at least 50 da Vinci robot lawsuits alleging injuries due to problems with the device and/or a failure on the part of the company to properly train surgeons. Results from a small survey of physicians released by the FDA on November 8, 2013 also indicated that training was an issue that could impact patient safety, due to both the difficulty of mastering the device and a lack of consistent training methods.

According to a report published by Bloomberg.com earlier this month, FDA reports of robotic surgery complications related to the da Vinci more than doubled over the past year, with the agency's database logging some 3,697 such reports through November 3, 2013. In 2012, it received just 1,595 reports of robotic surgery complications.  Some of the reports detailed injuries and deaths linked to operations, as well as malfunctions where no injury occurred, Bloomberg said.

Alleged victims of injuries associated with the da Vinci robot may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wage, pain and suffering, and more.
