Amy Francis inquest: Patient died after attempt to remove wrong organ
A woman died after an experienced surgeon unintentionally attempted to take out the wrong organ during an operating theatre complication.
Amy Joyce Francis, 77, was due to have a kidney removed at the Royal Gwent Hospital in July 2010 but instead the surgeon tried to remove her liver.
Mrs Francis from Newport suffered a fatal heart attack after a loss of blood.
The coroner recorded a narrative verdict which was fully accepted by the Aneurin Bevan Health Board.
