Rich Piana’s Autopsy

The results are in…and they’re not what you’d expect.

Florida’s District Six Medical Examiner has completed Rich Piana’s autopsy (read the full report at MuckRock). Here’s what got reported:

an enlarged heart (and “significant heart disease”)

mild coronary atherosclerosis (plaque buildup on the artery walls)

fatty liver

congested thyroid

congested kidneys

discolored kidneys

ischemic brain tissue (i.e. brain tissue that had lost blood supply)

necrotic brain tissue (i.e. dead cells)

brain edema (swelling)

ascites (accumulation of protein-containing fluid in the abdomen)

In addition, by far the lengthiest part of the autopsy’s notes concerned his lungs, which were filled with fluid and swollen (bronchopneumonia pleural effusion wih edema), showed apparent fat emboli and micro-abscesses, plus displayed both acute and chronic inflammatory cells.

No cause or manner of death is given.

And it would be nearly impossible to determine cause of death with any certainty, as a result of Piana’s severe heart disease and admitted (performance enhancing) drug use — plus the fact that he survived in a coma for 18 days in the hospital.
No toxicology tests were administered because the hospital discarded the specimens, despite an explicit request that they be retained.

im guessing all that shit just sitting in the muscle for years was slowly being absorbed into his entire body. killing him slowly in effect.

he was probably sicker then most because of the excess goop he had in his muscles. aas obviously played a huge role but who knows what that other shit he had just sitting in his body was doing after all those years as it broke down and slowly got absorbed. probably turned into some kind of toxin.

The goop plus a life time of AAS abuse and rec drug abuse = he was basically rotting from the inside out. Go back and look at that thread you posted about rich being in a coma. This is exactly what I said.

The mid anterior lower neck had a tracheostomy and a tracheostomy tube. The mid left upper abdomen had a PEG tube. The medial aspect of the right arm had an IV catheter. An indwelling catheter was protruding from the urethra. The right wrist had hospital ID and DNR bracelets. A rectal tube was in place."

A tracheostomy tube and a PEG tube means he was in the hospital/ICU and bedridden for a long time on the ventilator; this basically means that a lot of the autopsy findings could be (and is very likely to be) from lying in the same bed without moving for 18 days.

"The lung appeared moderately-markedly congested with scattered areas of consolidations associated with greenish purulent exudates in the cut surfaces."

The "bronchopneumonia with bilateral purulent pleural effusions" is likely due to him being intubated for such a long time in the ICU. Any time you have a breathing tube down your throat, you're prone to developing nasty pneumonia after 3-4 days. He was intubated for 18. It probably contributed to his death but likely developed after he was already in the hospital, as is true for most of the other significant findings on the autopsy.

The 3160 gm liver had a smooth serosal surface and that was yellowish-tan and greasy in texture from (mild) fatty change with no gross fibrosis, cirrhosis, necrosis, or neoplasm. The gallbladder was unremarkable.

With only "mild" fatty change and no gross fibrosis/cirrhosis, this tells me that the liver was probably fine prior to admission, although it is quite large. Probably no significant liver changes despite the "ascites" documented in the report, which could have been a result of being in the hospital and having a shit ton of fluids being given to you through an IV. I've taken care of a lot of patients in the ICU. They almost always get swollen from our IV fluids/medications if they stay long enough.

"Brain: edema, necrosis, ischemic changes"

These are microscopic findings. This shit happens to everyone who dies. See context below:

"No abnormality*was noted in the reflected scalp, calvarium, dura, meninges or the base of the skull. The gyri were flattened with*no obvious herniation. The cerebral vascular system was*unremarkable. The circle of Willis and other basal vasculature*appeared intact and normally formed. The 1500 gm soft friable dusky decomposing/necrotic appearing brain was*free of gross neoplastic masses. The ventricles were compressed. The thalamus, the hypothalamus, the basal ganglia, the midbrain, the pons, the medulla and the cerebellum were*normally situated and were atraumatic."

This tells me at least structurally that the brain was fine.

"The 670 gm heart had a normal configuration and an unremarkable epicardial surface. The coronary arteries were normally developed and had mild atherosclerotic disease. The myocardial cut surfaces had no fibrosis, infarctions or focal lesions. The chambers were not dilated. The atrial and the ventricular septae were intact. The heart was enlarged with the myocardium of the left ventricle and the right ventricle hypertrophied. The papillary muscles and chordae tendineae were thickened. The endocardium and heart valves were not fibrosed. The aorta had mild atherosclerosis. The major arteries and great veins showed normal distribution."

This is the juicy part.

His heart was huge at 670 grams (normal heart weight for males: about 330 grams +/- 60)."Mild atherosclerotic disease" happens to nearly every male if you live long enough."No fibrosis, infarctions, or focal lesions" means probably not a heart attack.

The heart "was enlarged with the myocardium of the left ventricle and right ventricle hypertrophied. The papillary muscles and chordae tendineae were thickened." This means that the heart was fucking huge. Both the left and right ventricles were big, meaning it probably wasn't the heart valves or the lungs causing his heart to grow. This means either his genetics suck and gave him a big heart, or it was the drugs.

his heart was fucken massive. combine that with all the drugs both rec and AAS and his plastic goop injections etc.. he abused so much shit I think it's a safe bet to say his cause of death was lifestyle and the duration of that lifestyle that led to him dropping dead. may have been an OD but it would have been a heart attack a year later. this dude was never going to live long.

bodybuilding drugs can be used somewhat safely, but now how he used them. you can't discount the role his extreme bodybuilding lifestyle played in his death.

Steroids played a part for the enlarge heart... most if not all athletes have bigger hearts than the average person..., but yes his steroid abuse was the cause of the heart, but the recreation drugs is what killed him and made his left ventricular explode

it is very odd that they gave no toxicology report. is the family able to keep that private or is that supposed to be public knowledge?

no doubt he would have had a oxy blood level of 50%. lol
