Donda West died of heart disease while suffering "multiple post-operative factors" after plastic surgery, the L.A. coroner said Thursday.

However, an autopsy failed to determine the exact role these factors played in Kanye's mother's death following liposuction and breast-reduction surgery.

"The final manner of death could not be determined," the coroner said in a statement. "Multiple post-operative factors could have played a role in the death. The exact contribution of each factor could not be determined. There was no evidence of a surgical or anesthetic misadventure."

Just a day prior to her death, West had undergone cosmetic surgery with awful Dr. Jan Adams, who has faced well-earned scrutiny since West died.

At the time her death, a family spokesperson said West had passed away "as the result of complications from a cosmetic surgical procedure."

An L.A. County Superior Court judge has issued a warrant for the arrest of Jan Adams, who didn't show up for a hearing today, reports TMZ.

Lori Ufondu sued Dr. Jan Adams and won a judgment of over $100,000 after he left a sponge inside her following surgery. Ufondu's lawyer says Dr. Adams hasn't paid.

Dr. Jan Adams was ordered to appear at 8:30 a.m. this morning in San Pedro, Calif., for a "judgment debtor" hearing, in order to establish where he had assets. The doctor didn't show, and the judge issued a warrant.

Dr. Jan Adams, who doesn't look or act shady whatsoever, operated on Kanye West's mother, Donda West, the day before she tragically passed away last week.

UPDATE: As of 2 p.m. PST, Dr. Jan Adams has surfaced walked into a Los Angeles County Courtroom to face one of his victims who sued him for malpractice and a botched surgery, TMZ is reporting live on the scene.

Dr. Adams was asked about the death of Kanye West's mom, and he said, "I can not comment appropriately until I receive the coroner's report." The "doctor" arrived, alone, in a black pinstriped suit and tie.

We will have more on the Jan Adams case as the story develops.

Meanwhile, colleagues, friends and family gathered Friday to celebrate the life of Donda West with music and tributes at a memorial service Friday at Chicago State University, where she was a faculty member for 24 years.

Fighting back tears, one good friend recalled that among other things, West was always "open and friendly with everyone. It didn't matter if you had a PHD, a bachelor's degree or no degree at all. She made everyone feel important."

Another friend read a poem in honor of Donda West about mothers, which included the lines: "How shall we celebrate mothers?/How shall we call them in the winter of their lives?/What melody will cure slow bones?/Who will bring them worriless late-years?/Who will thank them for hidden pains?"

Donda was a retired professor and former chairwoman of the Chicago State University English department. She was known for supporting her son and his fiance, Alexis Phifer, often stirring up controversy in the face of critics.
