This exhibit shows several surgical images that reveal the perforation of several loops of the small bowel during placement of laparoscopic trocars. In this particular case, adhesions are seen holding the bowel abnormally up against the abdominal wall lending to the injury. Later images show the subsequent spread of intestinal contents and the open surgical Laparotomy wound used in the repair surgery that followed.
