Marc Marquez was operated on in Barcelona by Dr. Mir after the fall of Jerez. The surgery was perfectly successful: a plaque was inserted, which reduced the three fractures suffered in the humerus of the right arm. The radial nerve is totally intact. The hypothesis that the Spaniard can return to the track for the free practice of August 7 in Brno is not excluded
Instagram: “The operation went well, I feel better”
Crazy things, things like MotoGP riders. The images of the fall of Marc Marquez foreshadowed a long stop, but after the operation, optimism grew, and not a little. Dr. Mir, who operated on Marc in the morning in Barcelona, inserted a plaque to reduce the three points where the right humerus was fractured.
The traumatologist also had the opportunity to evaluate the integrity of the radial nerve, which controls hand mobility. This is the most important confirmation because with a nerve injury the time would inevitably have increased by a few weeks. In the coming days, the Honda rider will have to evaluate the inflammation of the humerus and the degree of functionality of the limb.
Marc’s goal, considering his physical qualities and his determination, is to get on track in 18 days in the free practice of the Czech Republic. It seems incredible but the mind and physique of the drivers are not that of normal people. This is also demonstrated by Cal Crutchlow and Alex Rins: the first was operated, always in Barcelona after Marquez, to reduce the scaphoid fracture of the left hand.
A small screw has been inserted to allow the bone to be sprayed and give the English driver the opportunity to be on track at Jerez on Friday. Same goes for Rins who, in qualifying, suffered from a dislocation in his right shoulder and a small fracture in the humerus. No surgery for him, only conservative therapy in the hope of being there already on Friday. Crazy things, things like MotoGP riders.
