Dr. Rena Malik on cystectomy-related litigation

A search of a legal database found 42 cases related to cystectomy over a 30-year period.

In this episode, Rena Malik, MD, discusses the recent Urology Practice paper, “A 30-Year Review of Cystectomy Litigation,” for which she served as senior author. The paper, Malik says, “is a snapshot into what we can find about malpractice associated with cystectomy.” Malik is an assistant professor and director of female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery at the University of Maryland Medical System, Baltimore.
