The Swedish Public Prosecution Authority is to re-examine manslaughter and related charges against former Karolinska surgeon Paolo Macchiarini, following a new appeal by plaintiffs.
The Public Prosecution Authority in Gothenburg will inspect four cases even though only two plaintiffs made an appeal.
In October, public prosecutor Jennie Nordin dropped the case following the conclusion that Macchiarini’s failed plastic trachea operations did not directly cause the death of three patients operated on at the Stockholm-based Karolinska University Hospital.
