Sourav Ganguly, the President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the former Indian Cricket captain is likely to be discharged on the 6th of January.
Mr. Ganguly is currently admitted to Woodlands Hospital in Kolkata.
Speaking to reporters on the afternoon of the 4th of January, Rupali Basu, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Woodland Hospital, updated Mr. Ganguly’s health condition.
Ms. Rupali said angioplasty now has been deemed a safer option and a nine member medical panel is treating Mr. Ganguly.
The 48 year old former Indian skipper was admitted to the hospital on the 2nd of January, after experiencing chest pain.
Ms. Basu further said, inputs were also taken on Zoom calls and on the phone from other experts including cardiac surgeons Devi Shetty and Ramakant Panda, cardiologist Samuel Mathew, Samin K. Sharma, the Dean of International Clinical affiliations and professor of medicine at Mt. Sinai Hospital, New York, and interventional cardiologist Aswin Mehta.
Rupali Basu in a media briefing said, “The discussion was also on the two other coronary blockages need to be treated by angioplasty in this admission vis a vis at an immediate later stage. The consensus of the board was that deferring the angioplasty is deemed to be a safer option and Mr. Ganguly is stable without any chest pain and is on very optimal medical management. The family members (of Ganguly) were also present during the board meeting and were explained about the disease process and further therapeutic plan.”
However, even after discharge, the designated team of doctors would keep an eye on Mr. Ganguly and his treatment would continue.
