As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, in a statement that set the tone for future actions in connection with Rivers’ passing last month, medical examiner spokeswoman Julie Bolcer revealed the comic’s low blood oxygen, as result of the surgical complications, caused her brain damage and, eventually, her death.
The office also announced it had “completed its investigation into the death of Joan Rivers, and has ruled that the cause of death is anoxic encephalopathy due to hypoxic arrest during laryngoscopy and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy with propofol sedation for evaluation of voice changes and gastroesophageal reflux disease.”
New York’s state health department continues their investigation into how doctors took care of Rivers during an Aug. 28 endoscopy on her vocal cords, in which a previously-unplanned biopsy was performed by Dr. Gwen Korovin — a physician not authorized to work at the clinic, who’s expected be the target of litigation from Rivers’ daughter, Melissa.
Rivers was 81 years old when she died on Sept. 4 at New York City’s Mount Sinai Hospital, a week after the initial procedure that took place at the Upper East Side clinic Yorkville Endoscopy.
