The woman underwent a rhinoplasty performed by the clinic’s leading plastic surgeon. Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is a plastic surgery procedure involving reconstructive surgery for correcting or augmenting the shape of the nose for cosmetic or functional reasons.

However, the woman had a possible oxygen deficit to the brain leading to the coma. She is said to have been in a coma for over a fortnight and was airlifted to the Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi.

Following the case of the Emirati patient who entered a coma due to malpractice, the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) announced that it has stopped the “First Med Day Surgery Centre Dubai” from conducting any surgeries until the results of the investigation are complete.

The DHA has also stopped the two doctors who conducted the surgeries — ENT surgeon, S.H, and anesthesia specialist and Medical Director of the Centre, S.D — from practicing, due to malpractice and added that legal action will be taken against all those who risk the lives of patients.

Dr. Marwan Al Mulla, CEO of the Health Regulation Sector at the DHA, confirmed that the authority has taken all the needed measures, both legal and administrative after it was notified of the case.

It has also immediately started an investigation, which found — in its preliminary findings — that the Emirati patient, who was admitted to surgery for a simple nose procedure to correct a deviated septum, was a victim of malpractice.


Due to the doctors’ negligence, her health deteriorated during surgery, causing her to fall into a coma.

“The 24-year-old young Emirati fell into a coma due to dangerous complications that she suffered during a Septoplasty procedure by S.H and S.D, at the First Med Day Surgery Center. The patient suffered from a severe drop in blood circulation and blood pressure. Oxygen also stopped reaching her brain, which caused her heart to stop for several minutes and put her into a deep coma, which she still did not wake up from. The patient was transferred to a specialized hospital and is currently in the intensive care unit,” he said.

Dr. Al Mulla said the authority immediately formed a medical team to investigate the case and find the clinical reasons that caused the patient to fall into this tragic state. Preliminary investigation of the patient’s medical files and history found that the patient did not suffer from any cardiovascular or vascular diseases prior to undergoing the surgery.

Medical negligence
Preliminary investigation results found that there was medical negligence by both physicians. It was found that they did not take the correct medical procedures for surgical intervention, such as conducting a medical examination before the surgery. It was also found that the patient’s clinical case was not accurately documented by the anesthesiologist in her anesthesia records during surgery and it was found to be incomplete. Also, it did not document the patient’s vital signs while the level of oxygen dropped and when her heart stopped working. The anesthesiologist also did not record the time he gave the patient the anesthesia and did not write what the vital signs were prior to giving her the anesthesia. This caused confusion in managing the case once it started deteriorating during surgery. The needed medical records of the patient were also not available when the patient was transferred from the center to the hospital.

Dr. Al Mulla stressed that the DHA aims to ensure the safety of patients by ensuring the implementation of the best medical practices across all health specialties. He said the authority does not take any medical negligence that risks patients’ lives lightly and so has decided to stop both doctors from practicing until the final results of the investigation are out. The authority has also banned the center from conducting any surgical procedures until the investigation is complete.

The investigation on all those involved in the case is still ongoing and is being conducted by a qualified medical committee.

The Dubai Health Authority stressed that it will be taking deterrent action against all those who do not abide by medical rules and regulations that ensure the safe and effective practices in healthcare.

Can rhinoplasty go wrong?

One of the commonest procedures to be carried out in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, rhinoplasty is said to be the safest procedure with very little margin of error. With detailed imaging, there is complete precision.

In many few cases, however, according to Dubai’s leading reconstructive and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Mohan Rangaswamy, there could a minimal chance of a base of the skull fracture. “In very rare cases when the nose bridge is fractured for purposes of reconstruction, the fracture could spread to the base of the skull causing cerebrospinal fluid to leak through the nostrils, leading to complications.”

Listing other possible errors, Dr. Rangaswamy said there could be room for error during anesthesia as the patient could have some pre-existing comorbidities that could lead to stroke or cardiac arrest.

“In some cases, the patient is prone to a condition called inadvertent hypothermia or disturbance in the thermoregulation of the patient’s inner core temperature. For reasons unknown, some patients experience extreme cold, shaking and shivering and become hypotensive (low blood pressure) which if not managed can lead to coma.”
