After former India captain Kapil Dev suffered a heart attack in October 2020, another hero of India’s 1983 World Cup victory has suffered a genuine health scare.
Sandeep Patil on Monday night suffered from chest pain, following which he was rushed to the hospital. He underwent various tests at a hospital in Andheri and then had a CT angio at the Jaslok Hospital.
Revealing about his heart issue, Patil told TOI, “I felt discomfort in the chest and was taken to Holy Spirit Hospital (in Andheri) by my friend Dr Vaibhav Kasodekar at night, where I underwent all the tests. My ECG was normal. I underwent a few more tests under Dr Ajit Desai at the Guru Nanak Hospital (In Bandra East). On his advice, I underwent CT angio at the Jaslok Hospital under Dr Shrinivas Desai. Some calcium deposits were found in the main line. On Thursday, Dr AB Mehta and Dr Ajit Desai will perform angiography. During that process, they will decide the further course of action.”
