Sourav Ganguly suffers heart attack, stable after angioplasty | Cricket News

KOLKATA: BCCI president and former Team India captain Sourav Ganguly suffered a ‘mild heart attack’ soon after a workout session at the gymnasium of his Behala residence on Saturday morning. Ganguly was rushed to Woodlands Hospital in Alipore where he underwent an emergency angioplasty and a stent was implanted in one of his three blocked arteries. According to a five-member medical board formed for his treatment, Ganguly is stable and will remain under observation for the next 48 hours. The 48-year-old will not require any further surgical intervention immediately, according to Woodlands authorities.
“Sourav Ganguly felt dizzy after a gym session and consulted his family physician who advised hospitalization,” cardiologist Aftab Khan, a member of the medical board, said. “He reached the hospital within the golden hour which helped us begin treatment on time. Preliminary investigations indicated a cardiac condition and an angiography was done. It revealed three blockages, including a 90% block in one of the arteries. An angioplasty was done to remove it and a stent has been implanted.”
The other members of the board include cardiac surgeon Bhabatosh Biswas, cardiologists Saroj Mandal and SB Roy and critical care specialist Soutik Panda.
Ganguly has ‘triple vessel disease’ which is triggered when the major arteries are choked by plaque.
Ganguly has a family history of ischemic heart disease. His father Chandidas Ganguly had passed away in 2013 at the age of 75, following a heart attack.
“When he came to the hospital at 1 pm, his pulse was 70/min, BP 130/80 mm of Hg and other clinical parameters were within normal limits. His ECG showed hyper acute ST segment elevation in inferior leads and lateral leads. Echo showed mild inferior wall hypokynaesia with preserved overall left ventricular function. He is haemodynamically stable. He has received loading doses of dual anti platelets and statin and is undergoing primary angioplasty now,” said a statement issued by the hospital.
The former cricketer has responded well to the treatment and procedure, said hospital sources. He had tea and biscuits after his angioplasty.
Governor Jagdeep Dhankar visited the hospital and expressed relief after meeting a ‘smiling Ganguly’.
Chief minister Mamata Banerjee too called on Ganguly. “It’s difficult to accept that such a young and fit sportsperson like him could have a condition like this. An angioplasty has been done and the block has been removed. Sourav is now relieved of his chest discomfiture. He is doing well now and I wish him a speedy recovery. Doctors have done a good job,” said Mamata.
Past and present cricketers, including Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahanae, Virender Sehwag among others, took to Twitter to wish the former skipper speedy recovery.
