Patient died ‘after robot surgery error’ with Da Vinci device

A patient died after a heart operation in which the surgeon was using a robot for the first time even though he had not been trained and did not have proper supervision, an inquest has been told.
Stephen Pettitt, 69, suffered multiple organ failure days after the procedure, which was conducted by Sukumaran Nair with a Da Vinci surgical device.
