Rins has compartment syndrome surgery

Rins has compartment syndrome surgery

Paginas Amarillas HP40’s Alex Rins has compartment syndrome surgery in his left forearm on Thursday in Barcelona.

The operation was carried out by the renowned Doctor Xavier Mir at the Hospital Universitario Quirón Dexeus in Barcelona, after Rins had experienced pain in his left forearm at Le Mans and Mugello. The symptoms worsened during the first day of a two day private test at Motorland Aragon, and so the decision was made to operate straight away.

Dr. Xavier Mir: “The operation went well. Tomorrow we will make a first examination, since during the first days he must have his arm immobilised with plaster protection. Starting Monday will begin physical therapy and stretching the fingers, elbow, forearm and wrist to evaluate his participation in the Catalunya GP.”
