74 years old women, Smt. Ann Smallwood soon after coming to Bangalore complained of Chest pain, was initially evaluated in a Private Hospital and then brought to Jayadeva Institute for further treatment.
Dr. C N Manjunath, Professor of Cardiology & Director confirmed that she has suffered heart attack and advised Emergency Angioplasty. Coronary Angiogram showed 95% blockage in the Right Coronary Artery. Dr. C N Manjunath conducted the Angioplasty and Stenting Procedure. Technically it was challenging procedure since there was lot of calcium deposition in the artery which is a feature in many elderly patients. She has recovered well and will be discharged within 2-3 days.
This British National is visiting India for 4-6 weeks holiday in Kerala. Smt. Ann Smallwood is planning to fly back to London in 4-5 days time cancelling her original programme.
She was very much impressed by the facilities, hospitality and the concern of the hospital staff & thanked all the doctors, Nursing Staff of the hospital for an uneventful recovery. She never felt that it is a Government hospital.
She is very much appreciative of speedy, quality and affordable treatment given to her. The same Angioplasty procedure in UK could have taken her more time since waiting list is pretty long. She also said that she is very lucky to get treated in this hospital of excellence.
