Abdala Bucaram must take care over heart condition
Posted On 03 Mar 2014
Because of a cardiac inflammation, former president Abdala Bucaram Ortiz cannot discuss about politics or something exasperating for at least three months.
Bucaram, self-exiled in Panama 17 years ago, suffers from myocarditis, a condition in which the heart is affected by a virus, which causes a decrease on the heart strenght and inflammation of this muscle.
According to cardiologist Edgar Lama, this evil cannot be prevented medically because it just appears, usually after a cold or a generalized viral infection.
American doctors, with whom he also had checkups, advised him not to discuss political issues and do physical activities, but maintain complete rest.
