Newcastle, UK, robot surgery inquest: 'Risk of further deaths'
from BBC News
There "remains a risk of further deaths" from robotic heart surgery, a coroner has warned during an inquest into a man's death. Stephen Pettitt, 69, died after an operation led by Sukumaran Nair at the Freeman Hospital, Newcastle, in 2015. He was the first patient in the U.K. to undergo the pioneering treatment. Recording a narrative verdict, coroner Karen Dilks said his death came as a "direct consequence of the operation and its complications."
