Post & Post LLC obtained a DEFENSE VERDICT in a wrongful death case on behalf of a surgeon and his physician group following a seven day jury trial in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Plaintiff’s decedent, a 62 year old female, had undergone a partial right colectomy. An endobag was utilized to collect and remove specimens during the surgery. Plaintiff’s counsel contended that the endobag, which had inadvertently been retained in the pelvis, caused peritonitis, intraabdominal sepsis, and ultimately led to the patient’s death. We maintained that the sterile endobag was not the cause of death, and that infection was a known risk of the procedure. We further contended that her death was a result of other complications which arose during her extended hospitalization. A defense verdict was returned.
