A 55-YEAR-OLD father died after complications resulting from a necessary operation, an inquest in Huddersfield heard yesterday.
Mohammed Siddique, of Longley Road, Almondbury died at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary's intensive care unit on July 4.
Mr Siddique had undergone an operation on June 15 to repair a hernia caused by an operation to remove an intestinal malformation in 2002.
He was discharged two days later, but was readmitted on June 18 with severe pain, vomiting and a swollen bowel.
The inquest heard this was caused by a small part of bowel which had crept under the mesh used to suture a hernia, which was causing bowel malfunction.
A third operation was carried out on June 20 to correct it.
The court heard Mr Siddique had died from multi-organ failure as a result of severe adult respiratory distress syndrome and scepsis.
This was exacerbated by a chest infection and followed by a breakdown of the small bowel.
Coroner Roger Whittaker said the operation was necessary and Mr Siddique may have died without it.
He said there was no reason to believe there was any proceedural error. Mr Whittaker added the death was unexpected. He recorded a misadventure verdict.
