BCCI President Sourav Ganguly is likely to be discharged from the Woodlands Hospital on January 6. Notably, Ganguly suffered a mild cardiac arrest on January 2 after a workout session at his home on Saturday morning. Ganguly had been rushed to the Woodlands Hospital on Saturday and after angioplasty, he has been in a stable condition.
A nine-member board of senior doctors discussed Sourav Ganguly’s condition on Monday and reached a consensus that though necessary, angioplasty can be deferred to a later date as he is stable, Woodlands Hospital MD and CEO Dr Rupali Basu said. Renowned cardiologists Dr Devi Shetty and Dr RK Panda participated in the meeting through a virtual platform while another expert from the US was part of the discussion over the phone.

“The medical board came to a consensus that deferring angioplasty, for now, is a safer option as Mr Ganguly is stable, does not have chest pain and is on optimal management,” Dr Rupali Basu said.
“The angioplasty will take place for sure in a few days or weeks. He will be discharged most probably the day after tomorrow,” she said.
Ganguly Has Been Among The Pioneers Of Indian Cricket
