导读:一名澳大利亚妇女在长期忍受发烧,痉挛,和肠胃不适后,终于在07年的一次X射线检查中,发现腹中有一葡萄大小的海绵。随后她便了解到,这块海绵只能是在1992年的结肠切除手术中留下的,尽管从1970年开始她已经住院12次。她已起诉这名15年前为她做手术的医生,诉讼将在这周审理。

An Australian woman says she carried a grapefruit-sized sponge inside her abdomen for 15 years, and is suing the doctor who she says left it there.

Helen O'Hagan says the sponge was left behind from colectomy surgery in 1992.

She thought the subsequent fevers, cramps and loss of bowel control were related to her original condition, until an X-ray in 2007.

The doctor had argued too much time had elapsed to warrant a trial, but a judge has allowed the suit to go ahead.

The Sydney Morning Herald newspaper said that over the 15 years, the sponge had "became encapsulated in dense fibrous adhesions within a sac of fluid".

It was removed by a different surgeon on the same day that it was found.

Judge Leonard Levy ruled that Ms O'Hagan could go ahead with the suit claiming negligence or breach of contract despite the lapse of time because the woman had been so preoccupied with her health that the delay was understandable.

Ms O'Hagan has been hospitalised 23 times since 1970. A colectomy is a surgical resection of the large intestine.

She also only learned this May that the sponge could only have been left there from the 1992 surgery. The lawsuit begins in the Sydney District Court this week.

    不好说是不是医疗事故。。。
    像明胶海绵(gelatin sponge)这类的就是专门用来止血的,上过手术的都知道,但一般都是absorbable的,因为它的本质就是胶原蛋白。如果遇到没被吸收的话,也很难怪罪医生啊。。。如果是纱布、手术钳这些在腹腔里那肯定是医生或手术团队的责任无疑了!不过现在器械、纱布数目不对,谁敢关腹啊。。。
    关注一下这个case.
