Surgical Stitching & Treatment Errors

With any form of surgery the surgical site will require closure with stitching or dressings. Stitching errors and medical negligence may arise where patients have been stitched incorrectly or with the incorrect type of sutures.

 

Types of Surgical Stitching Errors & Treatment Errors

Failure to effectively stitch or seal a surgical wound can arise in the following circumstances:

  • Ineffective stitching of a perineal tear
  • Inadaquate stitching of a hernia repair, resulting in an incisional hernia
  • Incorrect stitching of an abdominal surgery site
  • Ineffective stitching during eye surgery (i.e. cataract surgery)
  • Incorrect stitches during the procedure (i.e. using non-dissolvable stitches when dissolvable stitches should have been used)
  • Incorrectly stitching the whole wound
  • Failures in completely removing stitches and staples 
  • And other incorrect stitching errors

Such errors may lead to serious complications such as a severe infection, unnecessary pain and discomfort, an incisional hernia and secondary surgery to correct the stitching and scarring. In more serious cases a skin graft may be necessary if there is severe scarring. If you or a loved one has been affected by a stitching error which has prolonged or exacerbated a medical condition, Mistreatment.com may be able to assist.
