KOLKATA: BCCI president Sourav Ganguly was on Wednesday hospitalised again with discomfort in the chest, less than a month after he underwent angioplasty.
The 48-year-old, who underwent angioplasty earlier this month after he was diagnosed with three blocked coronary arteries, felt “dizzy and slight discomfort in the chest” as he was rushed to Apollo Gleneagles hospital for further diagnosis, a family source told PTI.
“He was feeling dizzy and had some discomfort in the chest. So, he was rushed to the hospital for further diagnosis,” he said.
“He had chest discomfort today and he is taken to Apollo today. Dr Saptarshi Basu and Dr Saroj Mondal are attending. Dr Aftab Khan will do the stenting tomorrow in presence of Dr Devi Shetty,” Woodlands Hospital said.

Meanwhile, Apollo Gleneagles hospital has released a statement on Ganguly’s condition, saying his vital parameters are stable.
An ECG that was conducted is said to have caught minor fluctuations. Ganguly for now will stay back at the hospital. Last time when he was taken to hospital there were multiple blockages found. An angioplasty was done and one stent was implanted.
The Kolkata Police created a green corridor for smooth travel from his Behala residence to the hospital off the EM Bypass, authorities at the medical establishment said.
Earlier this month, the former India captain had complained of chest pain while exercising at his Behala residence.
A nine-member medical team was formed and opinions were sought from renowned experts and cardiac surgeons including Devi Shetty, RK Panda, Samuel Mathew and Aswin Mehta from India and Shamin K Sharma from New York before a stent was implanted.
