Stewart Casper obtained a settlement for a 42-year-old woman who underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. During the surgery, she sustained damage to her right ureter, which went undiagnosed for four weeks, at which time she was alerted to a problem when she began to discharge urine through her vagina. She was diagnosed with a ureterovaginal fistula caused by the damaged ureter. She was required to undergo several invasive diagnostic procedures, and then she underwent a re-implantation of her ureter.
