Successful Compartment Syndrome Surgery For Pol EspargarÌ_
Monster Yamaha Tech3 Team rider Pol EspargarÌ_ has undergone surgery on his right forearm in order to solve the issue known as ‰Û÷compartment syndrome‰Ûª, or otherwise, arm pump.

EspargarÌ_ experienced a large amount of discomfort in his arm during the previous Grand Prix race in France and suffered a loss of force that began during the 7th lap. This pain is not habitual and had just sporadically affected him before.

After the race at the Grand Prix of Spain on the 3rd of May, the Spanish rider was experiencing pain and so a recovery process using physiotherapy was undertaken. However, the persistence of these symptoms signalled that a medical review was needed.

Following this, it was decided that the rider should receive surgery immediately to begin his recovery process as soon as possible to arrive in the best condition for the next round of the MotoGP World Championship which is on May 31st in Mugello, Italy.

The operation took place at the Hospital Nisa Pardo Aravaca (Madrid) and was successfully performed by Dr. Angel Villamor. EspargarÌ_ will be reviewed later this week.

"I had noticed this discomfort in my arm after some events before and I thought that it would get better quickly after the end so the race, but it didn‰Ûªt." Espargaro explained. "Therefore I went to visit a physical therapist about the discomfort I had in my right forearm after Le Mans and we quickly discovered that I needed to see a specialist.

"We decided to reduce the time between consultation and surgery, with the doctor Angel Villamor, in order to have as much time as possible between the operation and the next race. The truth is that I had experienced that sensation before but I did not consider it important, but unfortunately in these last two races it has been a little more serious.

"In Jerez, I believed that I suffered pain due to the type of circuit and the effort that I made during the first few laps trying to follow Lorenzo and Marquez and then Rossi and Crutchlow. Yet, in Le Mans it was even worse because I struggled very early in the race being nearly unable to ride the bike.

"Fortunately, the operation went well and I can now start working again in order to get in the best possible physical condition for the upcoming races.

It was a double day of surgery for the Espargaro family with Pol's brother Aliex who rides for the Suzuki MotoGp team having surger on a finger after a crash at the Le Mans GP on the weekend.
