Lisa Marie Presley died after suffering complications connected to the "sequelae of small bowel obstruction," according to a report by the L.A. County Coroner. Sequelae refers to a condition or a disease that emerges as a result of a prior disease, injury or other health concern.

Toxicology reports also revealed oxycodone, Buprenorphine and traces of the antipsychotic drug Quetiapine were present in her blood. The report further noted that no drug paraphernalia was found in the home when she was initially taken to the hospital, and her urine toxicology screening came back negative.

Use of opioids can lead to constipation which can then result in more serious obstructions. The coroner's report, per a news outlet, stated that Lisa Marie's specific type of obstruction was a "strangulated small bowel."

This was believed to be "caused by adhesions that developed" after undergoing bariatric surgery years prior.

As OK! previously reported, the 54-year-old was found unresponsive in her California home on Thursday, January 12, and was taken to a Los Angeles hospital in critical condition.

"My beloved daughter Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital. She is now receiving the best care. Please keep her and our family in your prayers," her mother, Priscilla, said in a statement at the time. "We feel the prayers from around the world and ask for privacy at this time."
