Alex Zanardi underwent five hours of surgery yesterday for facial reconstruction and to stabilize other injuries. The surgeries also were to prepare for future therapies.
The former CART champion’s condition remains the same. He is still in an induced coma. His cardio-respiratory condition is stable. Zanardi’s neurological condition remains “severe.”
Zanardi was injured in a handbike racing accident on June 20. He swerved into the opposite lane and collided with an oncoming truck.
