Woman discharged from hospital died of coronary dissection

Results of prosecutor-ordered autopsy

(ANSA) - Turin, October 19 - A 37-year-old woman who was discharged twice from hospital in Rivoli, where she presented a week ago with abdominal and middle-back pain, died of a coronary dissection, authorities said Monday according to results of an autopsy ordered by the Turin prosecutor's office.
    An investigation is underway, currently against unknown suspects, to determine whether or not the pathology could have somehow been detected by the health care workers.
    A coronary dissection is a rare condition with symptoms similar to a heart attack in which a coronary artery develops a tear.
