In a statement the Madeira Health Service said: ‘We confirm the admission of Dolores Aveiro on March 3rd with an ischemic stroke with a short evolution time.
‘This allowed us to carry out two vascular recanalization therapies, one which was thrombectomy and another which was a thrombolysis.
‘These therapies are helping towards improving the prognosis. So far the evolution of the patient’s clinical situation is improving as expected. ‘
Thrombolysis which is also known as thrombolytic therapy, is a treatment to dissolve clots in blood vessels, prevent damage to organs and tissues and improve blood flow.
MySportDab understands that Aveiro had suffered an ischemic stroke which is caused by a blood clot in the brain.
Ronaldo and Aveiro share a very close bond as she is often spotted alongside him on the pitch whenever the football superstar wins a trophy.
