A former surgeon was found guilty in the 2010 death of a liposuction patient. According to prosecutors, the patient received a lethal combination of lidocaine, fentanyl and oxycodone during the 11-hour procedure. The verdict also included a conviction of elder abuse in the case of a 77-year-old woman who lost consciousness during liposuction. Sentencing will be conducted next month, and a term of five years is possible. Fresno Bee (Calif.) (free registration), The (01/22)
