Abstract

The optimal outcome of endoscopy is conditioned by numerous factors: the most important are represented by trained endoscopists with standard techniques, by a systematized approach to event management, by a good documented patient informed consent and communication before and after the procedure. Complications are quite rare, but when they occur they can cause adverse events and patient injury, increasing the probability of malpractice actions. This article will focus on potential lawsuits that are likely to be pursued when there is the lack of one of these procedures.
