In brief: Possible consequence

Septicemia, or sepsis, which is an infection that causes a whole body reaction like fever, high heart rate and breathing, is a possible outcome of any operation or any procedure.
That is why the doctors have to be meticulous about sterility and cleanliness, to prevent an infection which can causes sepsis or septicemia.
