In January, maestro Igor Nikolaev already complained to doctors about heart problems. And so new hospitalization. A rumor has already spread across news portals that Nikolaev is being prepared for bypass surgery. However, the musician’s friends did not confirm this news to us. Like, there really was an operation, but not that serious.
– Igor went for a routine examination yesterday. I came to the hospital myself. During the examination, it turned out that Nikolaev had serious problems with blood vessels, a friend of the 63-year-old maestro tells KP.RU. – Igor has the same heart problems that Alla Pugacheva once had. He, like Pugacheva, had stents installed. There is no threat to his life, he is in touch with friends and family. We called each other now, his voice is cheerful, he jokes, Igor will be discharged soon, we were assured by those surrounded by the musician.
