Marc Márquez has been discharged today at the USP Institut Universitari Dexeus, once all the medical tests have been done during the last two days after his arrival in Sepang, where the Grand Prix was held last weekend. from Malaysia. The pilot CatalunyaCaixa could not compete on Sunday in the race due to the strong fall suffered on Friday in the first free practice and that caused vision problems.
On Monday, on his arrival from Malaysia, the pupil of Emilio Alzamora moved directly to the hospital in Barcelona to be examined by doctors Xavier Mir and Ángel Charte. The doctors have subjected the pilot to a thorough examination and different imaging tests, keeping him under observation for 48 hours under medical treatment.
In statements by Dr. Xavier Mir, Chief of the Hand Surgery Unit of USP Dexeus, “Marc Márquez presents a trauma to the left shoulder, an incised wound in the chin and second degree burns in the right knee, so that we have started with the cures so that the skin will regenerate “.
According to Dr. Ángel Charte, Head of the Department of Medicine, “the pilot arrived at the hospital after suffering an accident that caused a head injury with brachial involvement and several polytumors in the body. In Malaysia he also suffered an episode of blurred vision and distortion of the image. When we arrived at the USP Dexeus University Institute, we subjected Marc to a series of diagnostic tests that have shown that he suffers a periorbital edema that produces a vertical and sequential dipoplia (double vision) and discards any other type of injury. He is following a treatment to correct this alteration of the vision and it evolves favorably “.
His participation in the Grand Prix of the Valencian Region, which will be held on November 4, 5 and 6, will be decided in the coming days, depending on the evolution of the pilot.
