Joan Rivers Autopsy Results Released

Just in case you missed it, the results of Joan Rivers autopsy reveal what caused the legendary comedian’s unexpected death last month. The information was released on Wednesday by the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office.

(Inquistr) Following the sad death of Joan Rivers on September 4, her autopsy report indicates that she died from complications from throat surgery. The Medical Examiner’s Office says the 81-year-old television host died of “anoxic encephalopathy due to hypoxic arrest during laryngoscopy and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy with propofol sedation for evaluation of voice changes and gastroesophageal reflux disease.”

The report indicates that Rivers’ manner of death is therapeutic complication. In its conclusion, the autopsy states that Rivers was sedated with propofol prior to her death of low blood oxygen during a procedure to treat voice changes and acid reflux.

This classification suggests that Joan Rivers died from a predictable complication of medical therapy. Following the botched procedure at Yorkville Endoscopy on August 28, the comedian was left in a coma and died a week later at Upper East Side clinic. She was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital, were she was put on life support.
