Another goof-up at AIIMS

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: A 30-year-old married woman has been re-operated at the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences here after doctors detected the presence of an artery forceps -- used for grasping and compressing an artery during surgery -- in her abdomen.

The instrument was allegedly left behind during an operation the patient underwent at the Institute in the first week of January. The patient’s condition is said to be stable.

AIIMS spokesperson Y. K. Gupta said: “The patient was detected with genitourinary tuberculosis with a non-functional left kidney. The patient underwent an eight-hour-long surgery where one of her kidneys and ureter was removed and reconstruction of her bladder was done.”
