A 38-year-old obese man died of a heart attack soon after the end of bariatric surgery at Hadera’s Hillel Yaffe Medical Center to shorten his stomach so he could lose weight.

The man, a resident of the area, suffered from chronic illness.

His surgery was performed by a team of senior surgeons and was “successful without any unusual event.” However, an acute heart attack -- a possible complication after the surgery -- took place and killed him on the spot, despite efforts to resuscitate him. The hospital informed the Health Ministry as required.
