Summary: Plaintiff underwent a C5-7 anterior cervical discectomy, foraminotomy and fusion. During surgery a 2-mm tear in the dural covering of the right C-6 nerve toot occurred. It was repairing using Gelfoam. After Plaintiff was discharged, she developed severe pain and weakness in her right shoulder. She was readmitted and it was determined that she was suffering from an inflammation of the junction of the roots at the brachial plexus. The pain improved but the shoulder weakness persisted for two years before improving. She later developed reflex sympathetic dystrophy in her right arm. Plaintiff contended that the repair of the dural tear caused RSD. The defense asserted that the repair to the dural tear was proper.
