David Bowie: notizie sulla sua salute – UPDATE
Il sito della AFP (Agence France Presse) riporta informazioni più dettagliate che fanno rientrare il grande allarme della prima notizia data, specificando che si tratta di una angioplastica (stent), un intervento attraverso il quale si dilatano le coronarie ristrette senza operazione, ripristinando un’irrorazione sanguigna sufficiente del miocardio
Ecco il testo della notizia pubblicata:
BRITISH pop legend David Bowie underwent heart surgery in Germany last month prompting him to cancel his European tour, it was reported today.
Bowie required medical treatment on June 26 after performing at a festival in the northwestern German town of Scheesel, reportedly for a pinched nerve in a shoulder. But the Hamburger Morgenpost said the 57-year-old rocker had an acutely blocked artery requiring emergency surgery.
Chief cardiologist Karl-Heinz Kuck at St Georg Hospital in the northern city of Hamburg performed a so-called “stent” procedure with balloon angioplasty, in which a mesh-like metal device is placed into an artery at a site narrowed by plaque.
Bowie was able to leave the clinic early this week, the newspaper reported.
