Nick Larkey is back in training after heart surgery
NORTH Melbourne goalkicker Nick Larkey is back training after undergoing surgery last week to combat the heart palpitations that impacted him several times during games this year.
As AFL.com.au reported in July, doctors diagnosed Larkey with SVT (Supraventricular tachycardia), a relatively common condition.
There’s just like a tiny little hair hole in (my heart), so I think it’s actually a pretty common procedure – Nick Larkey
Carlton ruckman Matthew Kreuzer and former Kangaroo Leigh Adams, who has returned to the club as a development coach, are other AFL footballers who suffered from the condition.
