LONDON: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif and Dr Adnan Khan on Friday gave important health updates about former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
Speaking to media, Shehbaz said that Nawaz had gone through the process of cardiac intervention seven times.
"He was monitored by a doctor from Switzerland," said Shehbaz. "Some tests will be conducted today and some tomorrow."
Nawaz's personal physician Dr Adnan said that arteries carrying blood to Nawaz's brain were 80 percent blocked.
"Nawaz's medical appointments are booked," he said. "If the need arises, he will be taken to the hospital."
The government removed Nawaz's name from the ECL after a verdict from the Lahore High Court allowed the former prime minister to go abroad without the government's conditions.
However, the court included an undertaking from both Nawaz and Shehbaz which said that he would return to Pakistan after he recovered.
