Brain Surgery Guidance System / Brain Injury
A middle-aged man with a benign brain tumor that had enlarged over a year or two had surgery to remove the tumor. The neurosurgeon used a new guidance system device to map the brain and assist him in locating the tumor in the operation. Instead of reaching the tumor to remove it during the operation, however, it was alleged that the guidance system led the surgeon to a different, healthy area of the brain that was in a critical location. The result was that the patient was left with a quarter-sized hole in a healthy part of his brain that involved motor and memory functions. So, he suffered a moderate brain injury, and stroke-like damage; and, the benign tumor was never taken out. Mark Clore took the case to trial and, after 2-3 weeks, the jury awarded a substantial verdict against the device-manufacturer and in the man’s favor.
