Om detta stämmer så verkar det ju inte direkt ha saknats kritik och invändningar mot denna person tidigare.In 2012 Prof Macciarini was accused by Italian legal authouritis for demanding money from patients "under the desk", and he was placed under house arrest . Furthermore, during the same year proffesor Macciarini had an scientific article retracted because of scientific misconduct. This is followed by an ongoing investigation regarding falsified scientific results in among ohter an article published in The Lancet  and cited in Nature. Also, professor Macchiarini was recently accused of having performed operations without informed consent (required by the Helsinki convention). This have been appraised in several publications in november and december 2014,. Karolinska Institutet has launched an internal investigation since a thorough analysis of the publications and medical records of the patients operated by Dr. Macchiarini revealed that there are severe inconsistencies. As supporting evidence, four doctors produced an analysis of six of Macchiarini’s papers. Each one lists inconsistencies and inaccuracies, including:
-Inquires have been unable to identify any application for synthetic tracheal transplantation filed at the Regional Ethical Review Board.
-Unapproved informed consent form signed 17 days after the transplantation.
-Serial fabrication and omission of biopsy findings.
-Serial fabrication and omission of bronchoscopic findings.
-Fabrication and omission of clinical status. 
Even though Dr. Macchiarini has attracted global attention, it has been neglected and concealed that many of the patients have suffered devastating complications and died in very inhumane conditions. 
The analysis of the 6 papers published by Dr. Macchiarini´s research group is available here
The results of the aforementioned investigation are awaited in Feb 2015,.
