Sourav Ganguly undergoes medical tests, decides on stent insertion after reports arrive, says doctor


A series of medical tests would be performed on BCCI President Sourav Ganguly on Thursday, after which a decision could be made on the next course of treatment, a senior doctor at the hospital where he has been admitted said. The former Team India captain, who was hospitalized for the second time in a month on Wednesday, was likely to undergo an angiography and doctors would then decide whether another stent needed to be inserted.

Earlier in January, he was diagnosed with ‘triple vascular disease’ and a stent was inserted into a coronary artery after a mild heart attack.

“Mr. Ganguly slept well all night. He had a light breakfast this morning. attends. icon, said.

Noted cardiologist Devi Shetty could fly to town later in the day to examine Ganguly’s condition, review the test reports, and hold meetings with the doctors treating him, he said.

“Once the test results are in, we can determine whether two stents need to be inserted to open the blocks in his arteries,” he added.

According to a family source, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called Ganguly in the morning to inquire about his health.

Senior CPI (M) leader Ashok Bhattacharya also visited Ganguly in the hospital.

The former left-handed batsman was rushed to the private hospital on EM Bypass here on Wednesday afternoon from his Behala home because he was “dizzy with a slight chest discomfort,” the family source said.

For his smooth journey to the hospital, the city police created a green corridor.


A statement from the medical facility on Wednesday evening said that several tests had been performed in the hospital’s emergency room, but that there was “no change in his (vital health) parameters since his last hospitalization.”

Ganguly has been hospitalized “for a checkup of his heart condition,” the statement said
