This full color stock medical exhibit depicts bowel perforations that resulted due to the negligent final steps of a surgical procedure. A series of images illustrate the pre-operative condition of the abdomen, the operative procedure to remove a section of the sigmoid colon, the operative procedure to deal with the widespread adhesions and inflammation that occurred when a surgical sponge was left within the patient's abdomen and the ultimate condition of the small bowel and ascending colon.
