Legislator undergoes angioplasty after heart attack

Congress MLA Pratap Gouda Patil (Maski, Raichur district) was admitted to Fortis Hospital, Cunningham Road, on April 17 after he complained of severe chest pain.

Post-diagnosis, it was confirmed that he had suffered a heart attack and an emergency angioplasty was performed. A stent was inserted into the left coronary artery, said doctors who treated him.

“Gouda’s condition is being monitored round the clock by a team of specialist doctors under the guidance of Dr Keshava, interventional cardiologist. He is stable now and will be discharged in a few days,” said the hospital authorities.
