However, during the surgery, she had a sudden respiratory event and a cardiac arrest, and was immediately revived by the medical team.

The hospital said in a statement that the surgery was stopped and Andrade was tested and found to have a massive thrombosis, a condition where blood clots form in the veins. She was moved to the ICU and given medication and hemodynamic treatment.

But despite the efforts of the hospital staff, she did not survive and died on Tuesday morning around 5:30 a.m. The cause of death was a massive pulmonary embolism, a complication of thrombosis where a blood clot blocks an artery in the lung, as explained by the Mayo Clinic.

Andrade was a popular social media personality with 558,000 followers on Instagram. She also appeared on the sixth season of the Brazilian reality show Power Couple with her boyfriend João Hadad, as reported by Globo 1.

Hadad, who had been dating Andrade for two years, shared a heartbreaking tribute to his late girlfriend on Instagram.

He posted a black and white photo of them holding hands in Paris and wrote, "I’m torn and living my worst nightmare. A piece of me is gone.”

“It is with great regret and a lot of pain in my heart that I say goodbye to my Luana, my princess, my beautiful…” he continued.

“Today, it is difficult to understand God’s plans, and I do not know when and if I will ever process the absence you will make in my life and in the lives of a legion of people who loved your presence.”
