A coroner determined that the death of an immigration officer who experienced pain and rectal discharge and vomited weeks after a haemorrhoid procedure at St Teresa's Hospital was caused by misadventure. Kwok Chan-fan, 36, died on March 19 last year after he underwent a procedure called rubber-band ligation in a bid to heal his haemmorhoids, which had led to a sudden rectal inflammation, Coroner Michael Chan Pik-kiu found at the Coroner's Court yesterday.
