Successful 'arm-pump' op for Bradl

Stefan Bradl is back home after undergoing successful "arm-pump" surgery on his right forearm.

The 23-year old opted to go under the knife last week in the MotoGP off season after suffering chronic compartment syndrome on his right arm.

The procedure was carried out by Dr Xavier Mir, Head Surgeon of Hands and Upper Extremities at Instituto Universitario USP Dexeus in Barcelona.

"After the arm pump problem I suffered in Japan this year at Motegi GP I had my first medical check with Dr Mir two weeks ago and together with the Team we decided to have this surgery quickly," he said.

"The operation turned out really well and Dr Mir told me my arm was better than he thought, so I am really pleased we took the decision and operated."

Bradl, who was named Rookie of the Year, will continue in MotoGP next season after having signed a two-year deal with LCR to ride a factory supported Honda.
