(CNN Español) – The Fiscalía General de San Isidro, in Argentina, published this Wednesday the results of the toxicological and histopathological studies carried out by Diego Armando Maradona, as a complement to the autopsy carried out on November 25, on which the football extra failed.
The chemical information indicates that the presence of various psychopharmaceuticals, such as levetiracetam, desmetilvenlafaxine and venlafaxine, is detected, among others.
El Dr. Elmer Huerta, a public health expert and CNN collaborator, explained what levetiracetam is used to prevent seizures. Maradona underwent surgery for a subdural hematoma on November 3rd.
Desmetilvenlafaxine is an antidepressant and venlafaxine is also used against depression, but it combines with the anterior condition when the patient has a lot of anxiety and is very intranquil.
The Fiscalía de San Isidro also indicates that in studies there is a series of pathogens such as hepatic cirrhosis, chronic renal pathology, focal glomeruloesclerosis, atherosclerosis, ischemic cardiopathy and arterial hyperplasia at the sinoauricular nodule.
No alcohol or non-alcoholic drugs
The study, carried out with samples of orange and song, revealed that no alcohol or non-alcoholic drugs were found in Maradona’s body.
The Argentine judiciary is investigating the possible commission of homicide blamed in the case of the ex-football player and has special emphasis on the medical attention that is received in its last weeks of life.
The Fiscalia should determine if there is negligence or malpractice in medicine. Hasta la fecha no hay imputado alguno en el case.
Maradona murió of an ødem agudo of secondary pulmonary to chronic cardiac insufficiency reactivated. Public demonstrations took place in Casa Rosada and its remains were carried out on November 26 in the private Cemetery Jardín Bella Vista, in the province of Buenos Aires.
