Ganguly’s health better than before; Angioplasty was done second time 


Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) chief and former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly is currently feeling better and has recovered well. A senior doctor at Apollo Hospital said that Sourav’s health is improving after angioplasty and some more tests will be done. 

Ganguly was admitted to Apollo Hospital in Kolkata on Wednesday after complaining of chest pain. After this, he underwent angioplasty for the second time on Thursday and two stents were also inserted to remove the blockage of the arteries. Famous cardiologist Devi Shetty had decided to undergo an angioplasty of Ganguly after a series of tests and consultation with hospital doctors.

Ganguly has been admitted to the hospital for the second time in a month after complaining of chest discomfort. He also complained of chest pain while exercising at his residence three weeks earlier, after which investigations revealed that he had three obstructions in his arteries, for which stents were placed.

Earlier on January 7, after being discharged from the hospital, he spoke to the media.  Also thanked the doctors and staff for the better facilities. The 48-year-old Ganguly was resting at home after being in the hospital for almost a week. Even after going home, he was in touch with the medical team. He may have to undergo another angioplasty within one to two weeks.
