Preliminary investigation closed

COMMENTARY: The prosecutor decided on Thursday to terminate the preliminary investigation into Paolo Macchiarini concerning the transplantation of artificial tracheae and other operations performed at Karolinska University Hospital, where he had been employed as a surgeon.

The preliminary investigation covered five operations on four plaintiffs during the period 2011−2013.

“The only comment that KI can and should make on the decision of the Public Prosecution Office is that it has been a complex and painstaking investigation,” says pro-Vice-Chancellor Karin Dahlman-Wright.
