Nonobstetric Surgery During Pregnancy

Even when performed properly, non-obstetric surgery during pregnancy can pose a great risk to both mother and unborn child. This is because any surgical error or post-surgical negligence can dramatically increase the risk and cause severe injury to pregnant women. Failing to take the proper precautions can cause a surgical procedure during a women’s pregnancy to result in lasting consequences to the child, including brain damage, cerebral palsy or even death in some cases. The most common type of surgery to perform during a pregnancy is an appendectomy but any type of surgery such as pancreatic surgery, gall bladder surgery, surgery to address accidental trauma, among many others is advised against during the extent of the pregnancy. If any non-obstetric surgery is performed during pregnancy, it is vitally important to ensure that the mother’s blood is properly oxygenated and that blood flow between mother and child is unobstructed. If this flow is obstructed at all and there is a substantial reduction in the flow of oxygenated blood to the fetus, a brain injury could result.

Anesthesia is another risk during a non-obstetric surgery while a woman is pregnant. While a pregnant woman is under anesthesia, it is necessary to continuously monitor the fetus to detect early signs of distress. Failure to do so may be considered medical negligence which can be held against the negligent physician, nurse or medical facility responsible. If you feel your loved one has resulted in a birth injury due to carelessness or preventable medical error during surgery, it is best to contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney.
