When a woman passed away during her myomectomy procedure, a surgeon familiar with myosure techniques to cut ovarian cysts was needed to comment on relevant standards of care. The myomectomy had been performed in order to remove cysts from the patient’s uterus without affecting her chance of pregnancy, and had been administered in conjunction with a lap ovarian cystectomy and dilation and curettage to remove tissue. During the procedure, the surgeon allegedly re-inserted the hysteroscope, a thin, lighted tube used to better visualize the uterus. However, a postoperative CT scan revealed that air had entered the patient’s femoral vein, and she suffered an air emboli which rapidly restricted her blood supply and caused her to pass away. The use of myosure to insert a tissue-cutting instrument was brought into question, as was the versapoint resectoscope that had been employed during the surgery.
