Autopsy results released today found that Terri Schiavo had massive and irrevocable brain damage. She was also blind and there were no signs of abuse. The 41-year-old Schiavo died in March after her husband won a legal battle with her parents over the removal of her feeding tube. Pinellas County medical examiner Jon Thogmartin said she died of dehydration, and not starvation, there was no chance her condition could have improved.

--- Her brain was profoundly atrophied. The brain weighed 615 grams, roughly half of the expected weight of a human brain. There was massive neuronal loss or damage. This damage was irreversible, and no amount of therapy or treatment would have regenerated the massive loss of neurons.

The autopsy findings were consistent with her husband’s contention that Terri Schiavo was in a persistent vegetative state. The cause of her original collapse was left undetermined.
