Could Astori have been saved?

Tests allegedly show former Fiorentina defender Davide Astori had extra heartbeats less than a year before his tragic death in March.

However, both ‘highlighted ventricular extrasystoles’, while the second test showed ‘an extrasystole with two morphologies’, described as ‘a small clue that his heart didn’t work as it should have’.
