Diego Maradona was left ‘to fate’ despite survival chances
Diego Maradona survival chances
Diego Maradona has received inadequate medical care and was suffering for a “prolonged period” before passing away on November 25 last year. According to a medical panel of twenty experts that investigated the death of the football icon Friday.
The folk hero died of a heart attack at the age of 60 years (25/11/2020), just weeks after undergoing brain surgery to remove a blood clot. Argentina’s prosecution had assembled a medical panel of experts to consider whether football great Diego Maradona had received proper treatment before his death or whether negligence had occurred.
In a 70 page document, the panel states that Maradona’s death trial began “at least twelve hours” before he was found dead in his bed. According to the panel, the Argentinian’s treatment was surrounded by “irregularities and shortcomings” and the treatment team left him to the fate despite chances of survival.
Maradona survival rate if he had received adequate medical care
The experts also say Maradona could have had a better chance of survival with adequate treatment in an appropriate medical clinic. The football star died in a rented house in a chic neighborhood in Buenos Aires where he received home care. A few weeks earlier, he had undergone brain surgery to remove a blood clot.
Maradona is considered one of the greatest football players of all time. The former attacker led Argentina to the world title in 1986 and in 1987 and 1990 gave Napoli the only league titles in club history.
Seven people are being investigated, including brain surgeon and personal physician Leopoldo Luque , psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov and psychologist Carlos Díaz. They have been identified as suspects in the criminal case, with unintentional manslaughter as a formal charge, and can receive a prison sentence of up to 15 years for this.
