New mother's stomach tears open in Norway
by UPI

TRONDHEIM - A new thread used for stitching at a Norwegian hospital apparently failed, leading the abdomen of a woman who gave birth via Caesarian section to tear open.

Shortly after having stitches removed from her stomach at St. Olav's hospital in the city of Trondheim Sunday, Tone Lise Johannessen found her abdominal lining had torn open, Aftenposten reported.

"When I got up, I felt my entire stomach tear. I got help from hospital staff and was put into a bed. Then I saw that my intestines and the contents of my abdomen had fallen out," the new mother of a baby girl said.

Apparently the post-surgery incident was due to a new type of thread the hospital had begun using two years ago, despite complaints from some doctors.

"The maternity hospital made a request saying we wanted to use a different thread than the one chosen," Fredrik Sunde of St. Olav's maternity unit said.

While a hospital director denied the change was made to save money, the paper said that the hospital's purchasing chief would not reveal the cost of either thread type.
