BCCI president Sourav Ganguly is “stable and under close observation” after undergoing another angioplasty, this time at the Apollo Gleneagles hospital in Kolkata, on Thursday. Ganguly had been admitted to the hospital on Wednesday after complaining of “chest discomfort”.
“Dr. Aftab Khan and the team comprising Dr. Ashwin Mehta, Dr. Devi Shetty, Dr. Ajit Desai, Dr.Saroj Mondal and Dr. Saptarishi Basu successfully performed angioplasty on Mr. Saurav Ganguly at the Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata on January 28, 2021 and two stents were placed,” a statement from the hospital said. “The procedure was uneventful.
