15-year-old Denis Alexander Stefania from Watford came to the dentist for a “beautiful smile” – she needed an operation to remove four teeth, but all ended tragically.
The girl died in the hospital of great Ormond Street (GOSH) in London after a routine dental operation.
Initially she was told that the operation will last no more than an hour, and made General anesthesia, but then something went wrong. Suddenly Denis had stopped breathing, she was taken to the intensive care unit. The doctors fought for the life of the child for five days, but to no avail – the child was dead.
According to preliminary data, the cause of death was a reaction to the anesthesia – he was fat, suffered from asthma and apnea (stop breathing) during sleep. The risk of death under anesthesia is less than one in 100 000, so it did not consider the day before surgery.
