KARACHI: Former ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s medical condition is said to be in a complex state that requires advanced units of cardiology capable of catering to his medical needs, revealed sources on Saturday.
According to the sources , the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader is in need of cutaneous and surgical revascularization which would be possible through an advanced unit.
Moreover, it was revealed that Sharif would also be requiring an opinion from an electrophysiology, keeping in mind his earlier atrial fibrillation catheter ablation.
It was further revealed by sources that Sharif’s medical reports are suggesting that he is suffering from moderate coronary artery disease which could result in a cardiac arrest as the inadequate blood supply restricts parts of the heart in receiving sufficient oxygen.
Moreover, he is also said to be suffering from unstable angina which could lead to a severe heart attack given he is not provided immediate medical attention.
According to the sources, the former premier would be better suited to receive medical treatment in the United Kingdom, taking into consideration that Pakistan is lacking the proper advanced unit of cardiology that is presently required by Sharif under his present complex state of health.
