Bronny James’ Cardiac Condition Identified: Hopeful Outlook for Recovery
The congenital heart abnormality that led Bronny James, the 18-year-old son of NBA star LeBron James, to have cardiac arrest last month, has been identified.
Page Six reported on Friday that “an anatomically and functionally significant congenital heart defect” was “the probable cause” of Bronny’s sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), according to a spokesman for the USC Trojans basketball prospect.
The spokesman assured the audience that Bronny’s ailment “can and will be treated” and that his family is “very confident” that he will make a “full recovery,” including a “return to basketball in the very near future.”
In order to establish his diagnosis, the 18-year-old underwent “a comprehensive initial evaluation” at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center under the direction of Dr. Merije Chukumerije and subsequent evaluations at the Mayo Clinic and Atlantic Health/Morristown Medical Center under the direction of Drs. Michael J. Ackerman and Matthew W. Martinez, respectively.
The statement stated, “We will continue to update the media and respectfully reiterate the family’s request for privacy.”
Bronny James’ Cardiac Episode and Recovery: LeBron’s Gratitude and Update
Late in August, Bronny passed out during a basketball session at the Galen Center of USC. The on-site medical professionals attended to him before transporting him to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he underwent critical care before being transferred to general care.
Cardiac arrest, in the words of the American Heart Association, is primarily identified as an instance in which the heart “experiences a malfunction and ceases to beat without warning.” It should be differentiated from a heart attack, in which the heart’s blood supply is cut off.
LeBron, who has three kids—Bryce, 16, Zhuri, 8, and Bronny—with his wife, Savannah James, was spotted visiting his oldest son in the hospital while appearing troubled.
After his son’s recovery from the cardiac arrest, the 38-year-old captain of the Los Angeles Lakers tweeted “relieved” to “thank the countless people sending his family love and prayers.”
He said in his letter, “We feel you, and I’m so grateful,” that “everyone is doing great.”
We sense your love, we have our family together, we are secure and healthy.
We’ll have more to say when we’re prepared, but I just wanted to thank everyone for their support. #JamesGang.”
