Former cricket and the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India Sourav Ganguly is expected to undergo a stenting procedure on Thursday. The stenting procedure will be done at the Woddlands Hospital in Kolkata and the hospital confirmed the same on Wednesday.
The procedure will be carried out by Dr Aftab Khan in the presence of renowned cardiologist Dr Devi Shetty along with Dr Saptarshi Basu and Dr Saroj Mondal.
The former cricketer has also undergone an angioplasty surgery in Kolkata earlier this month. He had also undergone a cardiac checkup earlier on Wednesday at the Apollo Gleneagles hospital on Wednesday. The hospital has informed that all of his vital parameters were stable.
Woodlands hospital stated, “He had chest discomfort today and he is taken to Apollo today. Dr Saptarshi Basu and Dr Saroj Mondal are attending. Dr Aftab Khan will do the stenting tomorrow in presence of Dr Devi Shetty.”
Apollo hospitals earlier stated, “Sourav Ganguly, 48 years old, male has come for a checkup of his cardiac condition. There is no change in his parameters since his last hospitalisation and his vital parameters are stable.”
The former Indian cricket team captain spent five days in the hospital before the doctors termed him clinically fit to be discharged on 7th January.
Dr Rupali Basu, MD and CEO of Woodlands Hospital had said, “Mr Ganguly is clinically fit. He slept well and had his meal. He wanted to stay in the hospital for one more day. So he will go home tomorrow. It is his personal decision.” Dr Rupali Basu also declared earlier that the former cricketer would be monitored at his home on a daily basis.
