Former Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif will be admitted to hospital soon for a heart operation.

According to a source from Royal Brompton Hospital, the cardiologists asked Nawaz Sharif that he must admit to the hospital for his heart operation.

Nawaz Sharif advised that it will determine within a week whether he will need a heart operation, bypass, or insertion of stent.

The source said that for about two months, Nawaz Sharif has been in London for the management of his blood platelets.

It remains unresolved and platelets remain unstable.

Earlier, Dr. Adnan Khan said that doctors are going through the whole medical history of Nawaz Sharif.

They have recommended cardiac intervention for Nawaz Sharif.

Last month, Professor Redwood said that Nawaz Sharif should admit to the hospital for heart procedure.

The real cause of low platelet count of Nawaz Sharif still not determined.

Last week, doctors at the Royal Brompton Hospital told Nawaz Sharif that his cardiac PET scan suggestive of ischemic myocardium.

Blood supply to heart is deficient which causes risk for a heart attack and the cause of his ongoing angina.

Dr. Adnan Khan was not available to comment about Nawaz Sharif’s possible admission.

But, he issued statements on his Twitter account.

Dr. Adnan Khan wrote: “Nawaz Sharif was scheduled for comprehensive cardiovascular review at Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospital, London by a Cardiac Interventionist.

In previous weeks, he had Echocardiogram, Holter Analysis & radioisotope Rubidium Cardiac PET/CT scan.

Former PM Nawaz Sharif’s non-invasive cardiovascular investigations are suggestive of significant severe coronary artery disease, extensive impaired perfusion & compromised heart function.

There’s absolute need of an intervention, PCI, which will be of high risk in his case.

Any invasive procedure, as coronary intervention, requires normal platelet count and stable coagulation profile.

However, Mr. Sharif’s platelet count remains unstable & variable on optimal therapy.

He would require to stabilize first to opt for PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention).”
