Psychological consequences of a case of aortic perforation during laparoscopic surgery
Cosentino M., Trovó S., Bruno L.
Although rare, the severe complications inherent in the laparoscopic technique can be physically devastating, whereas from a psychological point of view they may be very traumatic because they are perceived by the patient as unexpected and totally out of proportion compared to the perceived expectation of risk prior to surgery. The possible psychological consequences of a case of aortic perforation with cardiac arrest were evaluated using the Rorschach test in a patient who had undergone exploratory laparoscopy for secondary amenorrhea. An analysis of the test did not show psychotraumatic data attributable with certainty to this experience.
