Kolkata, January 3
Former India captain Sourav Ganguly, who underwent angioplasty after a “mild” heart attack, is stable and his health parameters are normal, doctors said today.
Ganguly, the current BCCI president, was diagnosed with three blocked coronary arteries on Saturday, following which a stent was inserted in one to remove the blockage.
“He had an uneventful last night and is presently afebrile (not feverish)…” a bulletin issued by the private hospital where Ganguly is admitted said.
Doctors said they make a decision on conducting another angioplasty after assessing Ganguly’s condition. A hospital spokesperson said the medical board is not thinking about the option of a bypass surgery. “Our expert panel will decide about the future course of treatment tomorrow,” he said, adding that Ganguly’s oxygen support had been removed as it was no longer required. — PTI
