(ANSA) – Bologna, November 1 – An Italian doctor has been
placed under investigation for the death of a man in relation to
a pulmonary embolism that may have been provoked after he sought
medical assistance for a sprained ankle, amid concern he was
given insufficient anticoagulants.
Eugenio Flaviano, a 56-year-old self-employed man from
Bologna, sprained his ankle on January 11 when he tripped whilst
walking on the street.
He was treated at the Rizzoli hospital in Bologna, where
doctors also prescribed him an anticoagulant, deemed as
essential due to his 115 kilogram weight.
The man started feeling ill in the following days,
suffering from loss of sensation in his fingers and breathing
pains.
He was prescribed anti inflammatory medicine and
paracetamol in the following days, the latter by his family
doctor.
He died on February 9.
The probe was triggered by the man's wife filing a
complaint to Bologna prosecutor Massimiliano Rossi.
