They will be performing an autopsy this week.

We're also told West, who was 58, died at Centinela Hospital in Marina del Rey.

Tina Minasian, once again, your forgot to mention that you LOST
your malpractice suit against your plastic surgeon. You forgot to
mention that you smoked against doctors orders, etc..... Infections
happen & are a risk with any surgery. You also forgot to mention how
you've spent 4+ years stalking and harrassing your plastic surgeon
and HIS family out of REVENGE. You are EVIL! Hiding your revenge
behind religion- you obviously know NOTHING about religion. You are
full of lies. What a pro you've become. You are money hungry and sue
happy. Go smoke another cigarette and leave my family alone! Instead
of spending your life trying to get revenge against others, why don't
you take care of your own family... Doctors don't give people cancer. When you have surgery, there will be a scar. When you have surgery and then gain a huge about of weight like you did, the scar can stretch. Doctors can't solver marital problems such as yours. What a very sad life you live!!!

Did they not do the appropriate medical research or interview before surgery.

Did she fail to state her medical history or illnesses.

This has the makings of a multi million dollar damage award if there was in fact negligence
