This case involves a sixty-eight-year-old woman who presented to her gynecologist complaining of vaginal prolapse. The physician recommended that the patient should undergo surgery because he claimed no other conservative methods would work on her condition. The patient underwent a laparoscopic hysterectomy along with a vaginal mesh implantation procedure that was conducted without incident. Less than three months after the procedure, the patient presented to the emergency room with severe abdominal pain that was greatly out of proportion to her physical exam. It was determined that the mesh invaded into the patient’s bowel and caused a perforation. The patient was extremely septic upon her arrival at the hospital and died during surgery to repair the damage. The cause of death was due to a hypotensive episode that could not be managed intraoperatively, secondary to septic shock.
