Sourav Ganguly hospitalized again after complaining of chest pain
Former India captain and current BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly was taken to the Apollo Gleneagles Hospital in Kolkata on Wednesday after he complained of chest pain, weeks after undergoing angioplasty earlier this month. Reports have it that he will be kept under observation for two days.
"Sourav Ganguly has come for a checkup of his cardiac condition. There is no change in his parameters since his last hospitalization & his vital parameters are stable," Apollo Hospitals, Kolkata said in a release, according to news agency ANI.
"Coronary Angiography was done at 3 p.m. --- Triple vessel disease PTCA (percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty) and stenting to RCA or right coronary artery done through radial route."
Ganguly was hospitalized in Kolkata on January 2 after suffering a heart attack while working out in a gym. He was rushed to the hospital where he underwent an angioplasty operation. He spent five days in the hospital and was discharged on January 7.
Cardiac surgeon, Devi Shetty, who examined Ganguly back then, had previously said that the former captain was advised to undergo his remaining angioplasty two weeks after being discharged.
As of now, the former captain is kept under the observation of Dr. Aftab Khan. Stents will be implanted on his arteries by conducting angioplasty procedure only after a 4-member medical board constituted for his treatment feels the need to do so.
