(ANSA) - Genoa, September 17 - At least two doctors in the
northern city of Genoa are under investigation for reportedly
leaving a tube in a woman's abdomen after removing her appendix
22 years ago.
The 41-year old woman being treated for chronic colitis
was admitted to the hospital with strong stomach pains March
2012.
After ordering a sonogram, doctors operated to remove a
12-centimeter drainage tube that they discovered had been left
in the woman's abdomen during her 1989 surgery.
Investigators are examining hospital records to trace the
responsible surgeons' identities.
