Maria Grazia Di Domenico passed away at the age of 27 after a routine gynecological operation. An operation on the uterus due to a papilloma, a kind of curettage, which normally takes just 15-20 minutes, and return home within a day. But unfortunately the young woman never returned home, dead on the operating table of a prestigious clinic in Rome, the Santa Famiglia nursing home in via dei Gracchi, one of the most popular in gynecology.
But something must have gone wrong and Maria Grazia Di Domenico, 27, from Salerno, transplanted to Rome, volunteer animal rights activist and software consultant at a leading company in the sector, did not make it. The girl had arrived in the well-known clinic last May 17 for cervical conization of the uterus. Transferred to the San Pietro hospital and then to the Gemelli polyclinic, the young woman died a month ago. The prosecutor of Rome on the case has opened a file for manslaughter, trying to shed light on what happened in the clinic and to ascertain any responsibility. What killed Maria Grazia, who was due to get married on 11 September?
According to family members, the young woman began to feel ill immediately after the operation. Very severe pain in the abdomen and vomiting that prompted the doctors to keep her under observation, without however – according to reports from the relatives – being alarmed: “The doctors reassured family members about the physical conditions – explain the family’s lawyers – hypothesizing as possible causes pain a possible allergy to the antibiotic or a banal intestinal flu. They therefore prescribed some lactic ferments “.
After three days of acute pain, when the fever rose, the young woman was rushed to the San Pietro hospital in Rome, where she was found to have an acute abdomen due to suspected uterine injury. Given the severity of the clinical picture, characterized by septic shock and acute abdomen from peritonitis, the 27-year-old was immediately subjected to surgery, which however did not give the desired results: the infection was now too extensive, and after yet another transfer to the Gemelli Polyclinic Maria Grazia fell into a coma and died. According to the first tests, Maria Grazia during the initial surgery would have suffered a perforation of the uterus and presumably also of the intestine, which led first to peritonitis and then to septicemia which was fatal.
