Nawaz Sharif in hospital

Pakistan’s jailed former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was today rushed to a hospital after he complained of heart related complications.

He was taken to the Punjab Institute of Cardiology in Lahore amid high security where doctors conducted various tests on him including TROP-I, Echocardiography and Stress Thallium Scan. Sharif, is serving a seven-year imprisonment at Kot Lakhpat Jail in a corruption case.

A special medical board that examined Sharif in jail last week had observed  that he is not completely well as more tests are required before suggesting treatment for him.

Sharif underwent Coronary Angioplasty (PCI) twice in 2001 and 2017. He also had open heart surgery twice in 2011 and 2016.  The board said after evaluating these test reports and availability of previous cardiac medical record further management plan will be proceeded.
