Sourav Ganguly health

Ganguly was hospitalized for the second time in a month on Wednesday due to his heart condition.  He had a mild heart attack earlier this month and was diagnosed with triple vessel disease.  He performed an angioplasty during which a stent was inserted to clear a blocked artery.


 Hospital authorities wanted to release Sourav himself on Saturday night, but it was postponed for a day after discussions with the family.  In fact, Sourav has been able to do some work for the BCCI while in hospital.  His secretary Rohit Poddar Sorav was in charge of the BCCI after consulting with him while he was in hospital.


  Former India captain and current Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly is stable after an examination on Saturday, the Apollo Hospital here confirmed.  "Mr Sourav Ganguly underwent angioplasty at the Apollo Gleneagles Hospital in Kolkata on January 22, 2021. Dr Aftab Khan was examined today. He is doing well and all his vital parameters are stable," a statement from the Apollo Gleneagles Hospital in Kolkata said on Saturday.


  Ganguly underwent a second angioplasty at Ganguly Hospital on Thursday. According to doctors, Ganguly underwent two more stents to clear his blocked coronary arteries.  In a statement issued by the Apollo Hospital authorities on Thursday, Aftab Khan and a team said that Ashwin Mehta, Devi Sethi, Ajit Desai, Saroj Mandal and Saptarshi Basu had successfully performed angioplasty in Ganguly and placed two stents.  The former captain was suffering from darkness while working in his private gym earlier this month and was admitted to the Airlands Hospital in Kolkata on January 2. Ganguly underwent angioplasty and other related tests before being discharged from the hospital on January 7.
