University of Sports gives details of the health of Gregorio Pérez
Gregorio Pérez, at 73 years old, is the first time he has suffered from a cardiac issue, and until now he will continue to be constantly evaluated in the clinic.
The medical issue suffered by Gregorio Pérez occurs in the middle of the preseason work of Universitario de Deportes, with a view to the start of Liga 1 2022 and the participation of the cream team in the Copa Libertadores.
Given this fact, the person in charge of directing the training sessions at Universitario de Deportes will be the assistant Edgardo Adinolfi until Professor Gregorio Pérez is discharged.
But what is coronary syndrome?
The sports portal Pulso Sport Peru called the Javier Prado Clinic cardiologist, Jorge Albán, to explain a little about the illness suffered by Gregorio Pérez.
“A patient with precordial pain, that is, with chest pain, fainting, and possibly sweating, needs to have an EKG done. In said examination they will find one of the derivations with elevation, which means that there is an artery that is obstructing, ”the specialist revealed to Pulso Sport Perú.
When asked about the first medical actions that were carried out on Professor Gregorio Pérez, he barely entered the clinic located in Miraflores. “First the pain must be relieved, an anticoagulant is given to prevent a thrombus from forming and obstructing the artery and if it has already formed, to dissolve it. A cardiac catheterization is done, if the cardiac catheterization shows that there are arteries that can be dilated, a cardiac stent is placed, the artery is dilated and then in three four days he leaves the clinic and it could be his normal activity ” , adds the cardiologist.
“If they go in and see several obstructed arteries, several stents cannot be made because there are multiple obstructions, in that case they are prepared to put a bypass. That bypass is at least 7 days to 10 days of hospitalization. Then, the evolution of the patient is seen and the evolution is seen. Whatever measure is taken, the person will lead a normal life. The coach can continue to do so because he does not compete. In the case of a footballer it is different. In addition, there are many coaches with coronary problems and they have continued with their lives in a normal way”, sentenced the cardiologist Albán.
