BCCI President and former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly was discharged from the Apollo hospital on Sunday. Ganguly is now absolutely alright, who was earlier implanted two more stents in his clogged coronary heart arteries on Thursday. The decision to conduct an angioplasty was taken after cardiologist Devi Shetty went through Ganguly’s reports.

“He is absolutely alright,” Dr Rana Dasgupta of Apollo Hospital told reporters while briefing about Ganguly’s health.

“Sourav Ganguly, who underwent angioplasty at Apollo Gleneagles Hospital, Kolkata on January 28, 2021, has been examined by Dr Aftab Khan today. He is doing well and all his vital parameters are stable,” said the medical bulletin.

Ganguly complained of uneasiness on Tuesday’s night and experienced mild chest pain on Wednesday’s afternoon, post which he was rushed to the Apollo Hospital in Kolkata via his car.

He was admitted to the ICU. Doctors like Aftab Khan and Saroj Mondal monitored his health parameters to ascertain the exact cause of ‘internal chest discomfort. They undertook coronary angiography, electrocardiogram and some routine blood tests.

On Ganguly’s previous admission for the cardiac problem earlier in January, one stunt was inserted as he was diagnosed with Triple Vessel Disease. However, Ganguly’s second angioplasty scheduled then (January 7) was deferred by the team of doctors.

Earlier on January 2, Ganguly had suffered a mild-heart attack post which he had undergone angioplasty in the Woodland’s hospital. Since then, Ganguly’s health has been closely monitored by the high-profile nine-member doctors’ committee.

The 48-year-old was discharged from the hospital on January 7 after consulting the doctor’s team comprising renowned cardiologists Dr Devi Shetty and Dr RK Pandaboard. Ganguly was then put to medication, and his angioplasty was postponed.
