UPDATE, Friday, Jan. 13, 4:27 p.m. MST

Sarah Burke remains in critical condition and under close supervision at the University of Utah Hospital. This is after a successful operation to repair a tear to her vertebral artery on Wednesday. Neurointensivist Safdar Ansari, M.D. coordinates the team monitoring Burke and explains,

“Sarah remains in critical condition in the Neuro Critical Care Unit. With traumatic brain injury, our care is focused on addressing the primary injury and preventing secondary brain damage, as well as managing other injuries sustained at the time of the accident; all of which requires close monitoring and intensive care. At this moment, Sarah needs more time before any prognosis can be determined.”

Our thoughts are still with Sarah and her family. We are all praying for a full and speedy recovery.

Sarah’s family is grateful for the overwhelming outpouring of support from around the globe. Fans may continue to use Sarah’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sarah-Burke/50553451173 to express their wishes and receive updates.
