Against the background of the existing complications, the doctors discovered another thing in Valery Garkalin – thrombosis of the arteries of the upper extremities.

“The surgeon has already examined the artist several times. According to his conclusion, Valery Borisovich’s right hand is more or less intact, but the left one is more affected. If the thrombosis progresses and the treatment does not help, then Valery Borisovich’s left arm will have to be amputated, ”KP.RU quotes its source in healthcare.
