Utah County (Utah) Fourth District Court
A 31-year-old woman had a diseased right ovary that caused severe dysplasia, dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, and right side pelvic pain. She underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy with right salpingo-oophorectomy. In his postoperative report the physician admitted to removing the wrong ovary; an ultrasound revealed that the diseased ovary remained. Another physician surgically removed the ovary, which contained a benign hemorrhagic cyst and prominent fibrous adhesions.
- A confidential settlement was reached.
