|TTHPBA Director David Arnold Undergoes
Surgical Procedure Following Chest Pains
HBPA Board Member and past chairman of the Texas Horsemen’s Partnership
David Arnold underwent surgery over the weekend as the result of suffering
chest pains at his office last Friday. Arnold was taken to the hospital,
where doctors preformed tests and discovered that he had serious blockage
on a couple of major arteries. The doctors used angioplasty to insert
two stints into Arnold’s arteries and took care of the problems.
Arnold started noticing problems and mild warning signs earlier in the
week, but when he felt a severe shortness of breath and chest pains on
Friday, he knew that things were not good.
Arnold is now home resting and expects to return to work later this week.
He said that he feels fine and that he is looking forward to returning
to a normal routine.
