Sarah, aged 26, from Middlesbrough, underwent a Caesarean Section in November 2014. Following the procedure, she developed a persistent wound infection that required regular dressings from District Nurses.

In January 2017, Sarah started to develop a pain in her abdomen and she noticed a lump at the scar from the Caesarean Section. Her GP referred her for imaging at the local hospital, which identified that a deep tissue tension suture had been left in her abdomen following surgery in 2014. She required an operation to remove the suture, after which she, unfortunately, developed another infection.

Sarah has since made a full recovery.

Sarah instructed Megan Barker, of Pryers Solicitors, to investigate whether it was negligent to leave the tension suture in situ. Megan obtained supportive evidence from a Consultant Obstetrician in relation to the surgery, and also from a Consultant General Surgeon in relation to her current condition and any future risks.

We wrote to the Defendant Trust with our allegations of negligence in February 2018. We alleged that it was negligent to fail to remove one of the three tension sutures that had been used during the Caesarean section.

The Defendant returned to us in June 2018 with their response, admitting that the failure to remove the suture was negligent. The Defendant put forward an offer of settlement and we were able to settle Sarah’s case for £15,000.
