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.
