Mandal said, “His condition will be closely monitored over the next few days. What to do next, it will be decided only by seeing their condition. All his other parts are well and he will have to stay in the hospital for the next three to four days. “
He said, “He has acute myocardial infarction (MI) but his condition is stable.” Three blocks were found in his heart. He has been given dual anti platelets and statins. “Mandal said,” He has undergone early angioplasty and is now awake. His condition is stable. “
Myocardial infarction (MI) is commonly called a heart attack when the blood flow in any part of the heart decreases or stops. This causes damage to the heart muscle. Earlier, the doctor had told that Ganguly felt chest discomfort while doing workouts on the treadmill in his home gym.
Doctors at the hospital said that there is a history of ‘ischemic heart disease’ in Ganguly’s family. In this disease, chest pain or discomfort arises due to insufficient blood in any part of the heart. Most of this occurs during excitement or excitement when there is a need for greater blood flow to the heart. Sources in the hospital said that a team of five doctors has been formed to monitor their treatment.
The statement released by the hospital said, “When he was brought to the hospital in the afternoon, his clinical parameters were within normal limits. ECG and Echo were also done. He is responding well to the treatment. “
