At his Wrestling Babylon blog, Irv Muchnick has posted a PDF of Edward "Umaga" Fatu's autopsy report and summarized some of the more conspicuous findings.
Aside from what was already known about the multiple drug toxicity that caused his death:
- Fatu was suffering from hypertensive cardiovascular disease, including hypertrophy (enlargement) of the heart (it weighed 700 grams) and left ventricular hypertrophy (it measured 2.1 centimeters). The unnatural enlargement has been present in a disturbingly large amount of deceased wrestlers.
- His liver enzymes were elevated, a reminder of when three WWE wrestlers were put on medical suspensions at the same time for that condition in 2006.
Are there any doctors or other medical professionals who could give a more clear explanation of the report?
