Crucifix’s death: what clinical certainty?

Delvecchio G.

Ospedali Riuniti Bergamo


PDF


Crucifix’s death is a talking-point still debated without a conclusion where everybody agrees. Indeed we can only suppose the immediate cause of death because the available information is limited, the event is irreproducible and there aren’t scientific observations of something similar historically well-documented. Is it known that the death was unexpected and in advance respect to the expectation. That’s why the theory of a cardiac damage would seem to be among the more plausible. Some other theories could be taken into consideration. Among these, there are serious massive internal bleeding and a post-traumatic brain injury. These hypothese are proposed to encourage a debate.
