Robotic Prostatectomy Surgery Leads to Sepsis
NATIONAL—Recently I was reading about a middle-aged male patient who suffered complications after undergoing a robotic-assisted prostatectomy in order to treat early-stage prostate cancer. This surgery was performed using the assistance of a Da Vinci robotic surgery system. The surgery was documented to have taken place without any complications. That is, until the operating physician later discovered that the patient had suffered a small perforation in his bowel during the course of the surgical procedure.
In the Recovery Room the patient began complaining of severe abdominal pain. Due to these post-surgical complications, the patient was then transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to closely monitor his post-surgical recovery. The attending nursing staff noted that his condition was not improving but rather was deteriorating. Several days post-surgery it was discovered that the patient had developed a serious infection as well as sepsis. These discoveries forced the patient to remain in the hospital for several months and required extensive rehabilitation for almost a year.
