Kolkata: Former Indian skipper and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly on Saturday has undergone angioplasty and is stable now, experts in the medical team said. Ganguly was admitted to a Kolkata hospital this afternoon after complaints of chest pain.
“Sourav Ganguly is stable after undergoing angioplasty. He is conscious and stable now. He has a minor cardiac issue while doing some workout in his home gymnasium,” said Saroj Mondal, the head of the medical team treating the BCCI chief.
Sources said that there are two more blockages in his heart for which he will be treated. A stent insertion has been done as 90 per cent blockage was found in one of his arteries. He will be monitored for the next 48 hours.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee tweeted: “Sad to hear that Sourav Ganguly suffered a mild cardiac arrest and has been admitted to hospital.”
Union Home Minister Amit Shah called up Dona Ganguly to know about the well-being of her husband.
