Child Abdominal Surgery Causing Colorectal Leak
An infant who had a colorectal surgery performed developed a leak at the site of an anastomosis (surgical joinder of channels) between the colon and rectum. The result was that the child’s abdominal cavity began to fill with contaminated fecal material and stool over the next 24 hours. This eventually produced septic shock and brain injuries before the leak was repaired. It was alleged, among other things, that the surgery was performed improperly and that dangerous signs of blood infection (sepsis) were not recognized or communicated among the staff until it was too late. Mark Clore and co-counsel obtained a settlement successfully on behalf of the child and his parents.
