Sourav Ganguly again admitted to hospital


BCCI president Sourav Ganguly was admitted to the Apollo Gleneagles Hospital in Kolkata on Wednesday after he complained of chest pain. He was admitted in a separate room inside Critical Care Unit, at the hospital.

The hospital has informed that the cricketer is ‘absolutely stable’. Doctors will take a call on the second angioplasty by Wednesday evening and the surgery, if decided, will be done on Thursday.

There have been minor changes in Sourav Ganguly’s Electrocardiogram (ECG) report, according to the hospital. The 48-year-old former cricketer is being monitored closely by the doctors at the Apollo Hospital in Kolkata.

The doctors who are taking care of Ganguly’s health have confirmed that his situation is not alarming. He will be further monitored before they take a call, on Thursday, on the second stent which might be needed.

A statement from the hospital reads, “Sourav Ganguly has come for a check-up of his cardiac condition. There is no change in his parameters since his last hospitalisation & his vital parameters are stable.”

Triple vessel disease

Ganguly, 48, was diagnosed with ‘triple vessel disease’ earlier this month. Triple vessel disease is an extreme form of coronary artery disease developed when the major vessels supplying blood to the heart are damaged mainly because of cholesterol deposits and also due to inflammation.

The former cricketer suffered chest pains while exercising in his gym on Saturday morning. He was rushed to Woodlands Hospital. The batting great was diagnosed with three blocked coronary arteries following which a stent was inserted in one to remove the blockage. The surgery was done at Woodlands Hospital.

After a few days of stay at the hospital, Ganguly was discharged.


Notably, speculations are rife that Sourav Ganguly might soon join the BJP that is leaving no stone unturned to woo voters in Bengal where Assembly elections are scheduled in April-May. However, there is no official announcement in this regard. The entry of Ganguly in the saffron party is likely to provide it the much-required boost ahead of the Assembly election.
