LONDON: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif would be admitted to the hospital next week, his son, Hussain Nawaz, said on Friday.
Speaking to Geo News, Hussain said the ex-premier's blocked arteries would be analysed through an angiogram.
"Given [Nawaz's] kidney pain, the dosage of angiography medicine to be administered will be kept low as medicines used in angiography impact the kidneys," he said.
He said he could only confirm the day for Nawaz to be admitted to the hospital once a surgeon was available. However, he added that the "possibility of a heart bypass cannot be ruled out".
