As per a report from Daily Mail, Daniella Alvarez who represented Columbia in the 2012 Miss Universe contest, shared in mid-June her decision to undergo surgery after doctors removed a mass in her abdomen.
The original operation caused complications as the mass had wrapped itself around her main aorta artery.
Doctors diagnosed her with ischemia, which cuts the flow of blood supply to an organ or body part. In the case of Álvarez, there was a shortness of blood flowing to her leg.
After holding talks with doctors and expert physicians, Daniella opted to have the lower part of her left leg removed.
