A teenager died during a routine operation when a surgeon allegedly pierced a major vein after using the wrong instrument, an inquest heard.Ryan Senior, 16, suffered multiple organ failure during what was supposed to be a ‘low-risk’ 40-minute procedure at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

An inquest jury was told the Redditch teenager died after a surgeon allegedly used a sharp surgical instrument called a trochar instead of a blunt one, during minor keyhole surgery.

A trochar is a medical instrument with a sharply pointed end used to introduce devices such as drains and tubes inside the abdomen. 

The jury heard the details of the fateful day from a report read out by Birmingham and Solihull coroner Aidan Cotter.
