The final match held on the first was nerve wracking, and many fans, among them Egyptians who are known for their love for Messi, were waiting to see how the 3-3 tie between the teams would end. For Mustafa Abdel Ael, a 26-year-old Egyptian, this excitement cost him his life – after watching the game he collapsed and was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Experts in the world who covered the tragic event, explain that the cause of death is the “broken heart syndrome” from which the young man suffered.According to various opinions, this is a syndrome caused by mental stress such as great excitement or the death of a relative, and it damages the heart muscle and may even lead to death. Professor Jeremy Pearson, Medical Director at the British Heart Foundation, explains that “Broken heart syndrome is a devastating disease that can suddenly affect the lives of healthy people. We once thought that the life-threatening effects of this syndrome were temporary, but today we understand that they can affect people for the rest of their lives.” Julia Samuel, a bereavement counselor, also previously told NetDoctor: “For the past twenty-five years that I have been working with people grieving the death of a loved one, each of them has told me in their own way that ‘my heart physically hurts’ or ‘I feel broken To B. This feeling is universal and crosses cultures, gender and religious differences.”

“Not a syndrome but cardiac arrest”

In view of the reports that talk about a syndrome that causes heart problems and death, we turned to Prof. Yehuda Adler, to understand if such a thing really exists. “It’s not really a medical definition,” he explains to Mako Health. “It is likely that this person simply died of cardiac arrest due to an arrhythmia.”

That is, excitement is not a cause of heart damage?

Certainly yes, but since this is a young man, most likely he suffered from a disease in the heart muscle, because unlike an artery blockage which usually causes a problem in adults – at a young age this is often the cause of cardiac arrest. It could be something congenital or hereditary, which he was not necessarily aware of. The excitement may be a catalyst that encouraged the problem, but I don’t believe it was the one that caused the heart attack.”

Can such a situation be prevented in advance?

“I always say that young people should also check the condition of their hearts. You can go to the cash register and ask for a simple EKG test, sometimes it allows you to get an indication of a problem, and if necessary, you can continue the investigation with the cardiologist. Of course, people in their family who have a family history of heart disease are recommended go to a cardiologist in order to diagnose risk factors and treat when necessary. It should be remembered that 17 people die in Israel every day due to heart damage. For the sake of comparison, one person dies in car accidents every day. In other words, this is a common situation that needs to be kept out of the public eye, and if I was able to get one person to determine Make an appointment and get checked – I’ve done my part for today.”
