It was understood that the former Indian cricket team captain was diagnosed with three blocked coronary arteries, following which a stent was inserted in one to remove the blockage. A team of 9 members was formed who decided that the BCCI president didn't need any further angioplasty for the remaining blockage.
'I am fine,' said Sourav Ganguly after being discharged from the Woodlands Hospital on January 7, 2021. Dr Rupali Basu, MD & CEO Woodlands Hospital, had earlier said that Ganguly would be able to resume his everyday life in another 3 to 4 weeks once the remaining two blocked arteries are revascularized.
