Organ Injury From Laparoscopic Surgery
During laparoscopic surgery, damage to your organs can occur. Organs that may be damaged include:
- Fallopian tubes
Because of the nature of laparoscopic surgery, these injuries are rare. If any injury does occur, the treatment options will vary, depending on the damage. In most cases, these injuries are found right away, can be repaired, and will heal without a problem. If they do not heal, another surgery may be needed. Sometimes, an injury to an organ may not appear at the time of laparoscopic surgery, but will show up later. This may also require another surgery to repair the problem.
