Maradona suffered from liver, kidney, heart disorders: report
Argentine soccer legend Diego Maradona suffered from liver, kidney and cardiovascular diseases, but there were no signs of alcohol or drug use at his autopsy, prosecutors said on Wednesday.
Maradona, the captain of the 1986 World Cup from Mexico, died of a heart attack on November 25 at the age of 60.
Prosecutors in San Isidro, a northern suburb of the capital Buenos Aires, published the results of Maradona's autopsy late Tuesday evening.
It was ordered as part of an investigation into his death to determine whether the health care he provided was negligent or reckless.
At the end of his life, he suffered from a variety of illnesses including cirrhosis, heart disease, and kidney failure.
Toxicological analysis showed that his blood or urine did not contain alcohol or narcotics, but Maradona was taking antidepressants, an antipsychotic, and various other drugs to treat ulcers, convulsions, addictions, and difficulty disposing of waste.
Maradona had battled cocaine and alcohol addiction in his life.
"What emerges from the laboratory analysis is just as important as what is not. This only confirms that Maradona received psychotropic drugs, but no medication for heart disease," one of the investigators told the Telam press agency.
Psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov and heart surgeon Leopoldo Luque are under investigation as they treated Maradona before his death.
An initial autopsy on the day Maradona died revealed that he had a lung fluid with acute heart failure, caused by a heart muscle disorder that makes it difficult to pump blood.
Maradona's heart was twice as heavy as normal.
He had undergone an operation for a cerebral haemorrhage on November 3, just five days after his 60th birthday, which he attended briefly in his honor at the club he coached, Gimnasia y Esgrima, although he appears to be attending was in poor health.
Maradona was widely regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time.
He is a legend in his homeland who took her to World Cup glory in 1986 and to the final in Italy four years later.
He is also an icon in Naples. As a player, he helped Napoli win the only two Serie A titles in their history.
He had much less success as a coach when he led Argentina to the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa before embarking on a nomadic trip to the United Arab Emirates and Mexico.
At the time of his death, he was coach of the Argentine Primera Division team Gimnasia.
