(ANSA) – Florence, September 27 - Top Italian surgeon Paolo
Macchiarini was arrested by the Italian Finance Police at the
Careggi hospital of Florence Thursday for attempted aggravated
fraud and extortion.
Law enforcement officers of the Guardia di Finanza force
waited for the doctor - considered Italy's foremost trachea
transplant expert - to finish surgery to notify him of the
arrest.
Macchiarini currently has a three-year contract with the
Florence-based hospital, and also a relationship with Sweden’s
Karolinska hospital.
Prosecutors are also accusing him of having proposed to
seriously-ill patients to refer themselves to private hospital
structures he had relationships with in order to embark upon
costly surgical processes, amid allegations the process in the
public sector was inadequately executed or took too long.
