Marquez discharged from hospital, Valencia participation to be decided in coming days
Marc Márquez was discharged today from the USP Institut Universitari Dexeus, once finished all the medical checks he has underwent during the last two days after his arrival from Sepang, where last weekend took place the Malaysian Grand Prix. The Repsol rider was not able to compete on Sunday’s race due to the crash he suffered on Friday at the free practice and that caused him vision problems.
On Monday, when he arrived from Malaysia, Emilio Alzamora’s pupil went directly to the hospital in Barcelona to be examined by doctors Xavier Mir and Ángel Charte. The doctors did an exhaustive examination and different tests, keeping him under observation and under medical treatment for 48 hours.
In a statement, Dr. Xavier Mir, Head of Hand Surgery Unit of the USP Dexeus said, “Marc Márquez has a left shoulder traumatism, and incisive wound on the chin and second degree burns on the right knee, so we started with the cures to start regenerating the skin”.
Dr. Ángel Charte, Head of the Medicine Department, commented, “the rider arrived to the hospital after suffering an accident that caused concussion with brachial involvement and several contusions. In Malaysia he also suffered an episode of blurred vision and image distortion. When he arrived to the USP Institut Universitari Dexeus, we did several diagnosis tests that showed that he suffers periorbital edema that produces a sequential vertical diplopia (double vision), and discards any other type of injury. He is following a treatment to correct this vision alteration and it is evolving satisfactorily”.
His participation in the Comunitat Valenciana Grand Prix, that will be held next November 4, 5 and 6 will be decided in the next days, depending of how the rider progresses.
