Aspiration During Gallbladder Surgery

A middle-aged woman underwent a successful gallbladder surgery, but after she awoke from anesthesia it was determined that she had a severe lung injury. She soon died from lung complications, and at autopsy it was determined that she had aspirated (vomited stomach contents into her lungs) during anesthesia and/or the surgery. The anesthesia record for the surgery disappeared, however, and was never found. Suit was filed and Mark Clore prosecuted the case against the hospital and its anesthesiologist who denied any wrongdoing, but ultimately a confidential settlement was reached for the woman’s estate and family.
