Diego Maradona in recovery after successful brain surgery, doctor says

Argentine football legend, Diego Maradona had successful surgery for a subdural hematoma, a blood clot on the brain.

The procedure took place today in Buenos Aires, his doctor has confirmed.

The Barcelona and Napoli icon had been hospitalised since Monday night for anaemia and dehydration just days after he celebrated his 60th birthday.

Leopoldo Luque, Maradona’s personal physician, said he had “coped well with the surgery”.

Diego Maradona will now remain under observation, Dr Luque said, adding that everything was “under control”.

Maradona was transferred to the Olivos Clinic in La Plata, where was operated on at 20:00 local time (23:00 GMT) by Dr Luque, who is a neurosurgeon. The procedure took about 80 minutes.

A subdural hematoma is considered “among the deadliest of all head injuries,” according to the US National Library of Medicine.

It is a blood clot on the brain’s surface beneath its outer covering, called the dura. It usually results from severe head injuries but can be caused by minor injuries as well and can go unnoticed for days or weeks.

Maradona, who won the World Cup with Argentina in 1986, is the current coach of local club, Gimnasia y Esgrima.
