Maradona's Death Was Blamed On A Neurosurgeon And Seven Members Of The Medical Team

Experts investigating the death of world-renowned Argentine footballer Maradona have blamed seven members of the medical team, including a neurosurgeon, for the star footballer's death.

Prosecutors have charged seven members of the medical team treating him with murder, arguing that Maradona's life could have been saved but that the medical team had neglected his treatment.

A team of experts investigating the star footballer's death has charged seven people, including Maradona's neurosurgeon.

The investigative team also raided the neurosurgeon's home and a private clinic where they gathered evidence, believing that they had found enough evidence to prove the doctor's guilt.

The other six accused include Maradona's psychiatric months, along with two nurses and other medical professionals.

Maradona's medical team has been banned from leaving the country and could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

Those who will be investigated as accused are the nurses Ricardo Omar Almirón and Dahiana Gisela Madrid; the coordinator of the nurses, Mariano Perroni; the doctor who coordinated the home hospitalization of the former soccer player, Nancy Forlini; the psychologist Carlos Ángel Díaz; the psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov; and the neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luque, designated as Maradona's family doctor.

Prosecutors were investigating these professionals under the hypothesis of an alleged wrongful death.

From the report, whose content was disseminated by local media, it is concluded that the performance of the health team that assisted Maradona was "inadequate, deficient and reckless" and left "the patient's health status to chance.

The autopsy on the body of the former captain and former Argentine national team determined that he died as a result of "acute lung edema secondary to exacerbated chronic heart failure." They also discovered a "dilated cardiomyopathy" in his heart.

Maradona, 60 years old and suffering from alcohol addiction problems, had been admitted to a clinic in La Plata on November 2 for anemia and dehydration and a day later he was transferred to a sanatorium in the Buenos Aires town of Olivos, where shortly after arriving he was operated on for a subdural hematoma on his head.

On November 11, he was discharged from the hospital and moved to a house in a private neighborhood on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, where he died on November 25.
