Thu, 21 May 2015 00:00:00 +0200 Successful compartment syndrome surgery for Pol Espargaró Monster Yamaha Tech3 Team rider Pol Espargaró has undergone surgery on his right forearm in order to solve the issue known as 'compartment syndrome', or otherwise, arm pump. Espargaró 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. Already 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. Espargaró will be reviewed later this week.
