Former President of the Academy of Plastic Surgery says patients are at risk of embolism

RD- The president of the Dominican Academy of Plastic Surgery (ADCP), Rafael Cisnero, said Monday that a fatty embolism or any other type occurs unpredictably in patients who enter a surgery, without this meaning that there was bad medical practice

Cisnero, surgeon and criminal lawyer, said that patients who enter a surgery room are subject to this risk, without doctors acquiring any responsibility.

That is not an element to testify that there is bad medical practice, “he said.

The specialist made the clarification after the Minister of Public Health, Rafael Sánchez, reported that Mrs. Altagracia Díaz González died of a fatty pulmonary embolism when she was about to undergo plastic surgery at a specialized center in the capital.

In the middle of a heartbreaking scene, her daughter expressed that her mother, who would perform two procedures: breast reduction and seroma extraction (accumulation of fluids), was in perfect condition before being admitted to the operating room.
