The healthcare facility in Siena stated Zanardi underwent facial reconstruction surgical treatment for 5 several hours.

“The affected person has been through a new surgical treatment aimed at cranio-facial reconstruction and stabilization of the parts affected by the trauma. The fractures had been complicated,” stated Professor Paolo Gennaro, director of the Siena college hospital’s maxillofacial surgical treatment device, in a statement.

“This required careful programming that manufactured use of computerised, digital and three-dimensional systems, manufactured to evaluate of the affected person.

“The complexity of the situation was relatively singular, even if it is a kind of fracture that we routinely facial area in our centre.”

Zanardi is an inspirational figure in motorsport and Paralympics immediately after he had to have each of his legs amputated higher than the knee pursuing a horrific crash in a Champ car race in Germany in September 2001.

He afterwards turned to paracycling and received 4 Paralympic gold medals.
