The medical records and his clinical condition of Mr Sourav Ganguly were reviewed by the board members.
The unanimous decision was that an appropriate timely excellent treatment of primary PTCA with revascularisation of RCA was rendered during the acute heart attack stage.The discussion was also on the two other coronary blockages viz LAD and OM2 need to be treated by angioplasty in this admission vis a vis doing it at a immediate later stage.The consensus of the board was that deferring the angioplasty for now is deemed to be a safer option since Mr Ganguly is stable, without any chest pain and is on optimal medical management.
The family members were present during the board meeting and were explained about the disease process and further therapeutic plan.Treating doctors will be keeping constant vigil on his health situation and taking appropriate measures daily at home once discharged,” the release said.
A medical team, led by state-run SSKM Hospital’s cardiology department head Saroj Mondal, is looking after Ganguly’s health check-ups at the hospital.An MI, commonly known as a heart attack, occurs when blood flow decreases or stops to a part of the heart, causing damage to the heart muscle. According to an earlier account attributed to a doctor at the same hospital, he had suffered a cardiac arrest. A sudden cardiac arrest is when the heart malfunctions and stops beating unexpectedly.
