The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly successfully underwent an angioplasty and is in stable condition after being hospitalised for chest pain. The hospital said that the former India captain is conscious and his pulse and blood pressure are good.
The hospital confirmed he had suffered a minor cardiac issue while exercising on the treadmill and noted that the problem was addressed at the right time.
“ When he came to the hospital at 1pm, his pulse was 70/min, BP 130/80 mm of Hg and other clinical parameters were within normal limits,” Dr Rupali Basu, Woodlands hospital MD and CEO, said in a statement.
“His ECG showed hyper acute ST segment elevation in inferior leads and lateral leads. Echo showed mild inferior wall hypokynaesia with preserved overall left ventricular function. He is stable haemodynamically.
He has received loading doses of dual antiplatelets and statin and is undergoing primary angioplasty now.” West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had earlier tweeted to say that Ganguly suffered a “mild cardiac arrest” and wished him a speedy recovery.
