Practice Point
Password Link to Article.

Surgical injury to a ureter is a recurring source of potentially viable medical malpractice enquiry

Look for explicit documentation that the ureters were visualised and protected during surgery

Suspect defensive revision of the Operative Report if the dictation time is more than 24 hours after the surgery

Establish at the outset by medical screening how much of the adverse outcome will generate quantum of damages if liability can be proved
