This case involves a 70-year-old male patient who on underwent a prostate seed brachytherapy for adenocarcinoma of the prostate. The treating physician advised that he would insert 40 to 60 radioactive seeds. At the time of the procedure, the physician actually inserted 90 seeds. The seeds were apparently a new, stronger type. During a follow up visit, the patient claimed that he passed 4 seeds. In a follow up visit months later, the patient claimed to have passed 10 radioactive seeds. During the last visit months later, the plaintiff still complained of intermittent severe pelvic / penile pain, difficulty sitting and lifting objects without pain. Plaintiff claims that as a result of the procedure, he has suffered internal burns and nerve damage. The seeds either migrated, spilled out, were not inserted properly, or too many were inserted. Plaintiff continues to suffer pain from the prostate to the penis. He cannot have the prostate removed with the seeds still in place. The pain and injury are believed to be permanent.
