Sydney Galleger : Eden Prairie teen dies after cardiac arrest during wisdom teeth extraction

Sydney Galleger Dies Following Cardiac Arrest During Wisdom Teeth Removal.

Family members of Sydney Galleger announced on Monday that the Eden Prairie 17-year-old has died, after suffering complications from extraction of her wisdom teeth.

Fox 9 reports Sydney Galleger’s parents documented each day of their daughters fight on a CaringBridge page.

The surgery took place on Tuesday, June 9th. Her mom Diane wrote, “What started out as a normal day soon turned anything but normal,” her mom Diane wrote. “Sydney went in this morning for a simple, common wisdom teeth extraction. All went good until the very end when her blood pressure shot up and her pulse dropped and then she went into cardiac arrest.”

Sydney Galleger’s parents say she their daughter was in good health. She was a diver and an alpine skier. They say they don’t know why she went into cardiac arrest but say they believe she may have had an unknown heart condition that they were unaware of.

After three days on a ventilator, several seizures and surgeries, doctors told the Galleger’s on Friday there was nothing more they could do.

“As you can imagine, that was the most devastating news we have ever received,” Galleger’s mom Diane wrote. She goes on to write about how she wished they could go back to the day before Sydney had surgery. “We want to rewind to Monday where we had our happy, healthy, funny, beautiful 17-year-old daughter,” Diane wrote. “As we look at all the pictures covering her hospital walls, we can’t believe this same happy, healthy, funny, still beautiful daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and friend is lying in that hospital bed. We can’t comprehend it yet and not sure when we will.”
