WSB: Haga operation a success

Nitro Nori aims to be back in time for Brno

NORIYUKI HAGA'S operation to plate his broken arm has been hailed a success and it looks like the Japanese star may well make it back onto his Xerox Ducati in time for the next round of the championship at Brno on July 26.

At 5pm yesterday afternoon (Monday) Haga underwent successful surgery at the Derby City Hospital. Having fractured the ulna in his right arm in Sunday's crash at Donington Park, Noriyuki had a plate and screws inserted to set the bone. The surgical team deemed the surgery a success and there were no unforeseen complications.

Prior to the operation, medical staff took a closer look at his right shoulder blade and an x-ray unfortunately confirmed that he has multiple fractures to his left scapula. The scapula will not necessitate surgical intervention and the bone should knit itself back together in time; this complication should not prolong Noriyuki’s recovery time. The Japanese rider should be discharged from hospital today (Tuesday) and he and his family will fly back to Italy so that Nori can begin the necessary physiotherapy treatment.

The Ducati Xerox rider will not participate in the next tests at Imola but should be back for Brno.
