Right now: Paolo Macchiarini is convicted in the district court

  • A unanimous district court sentenced Paolo Macchiarini for causing bodily harm, a felony, in case. He is acquitted on two of three charges and sentenced to a suspended sentence.

  • The surgeon has been prosecuted for three cases of aggravated assault, against three patients who had synthetic tracheas implanted in the years 2011–2012

  • Macchiarini himself has consistently denied any wrongdoing, claiming that the operations on the three patients were performed as a life-saving measure and that the implant was the only option for them.
