The coronary angioplasty was conducted as medicos detected a blockage in Mukherjee's heart after he was admitted there with stomach problems.

On Sunday, Mr. Mukherjee thanked people for their wishes on his official twitter account.

"Grateful for all the thoughts, wishes and prayers for my good health; I have recovered and am hoping to return to work soon," the President tweeted.

Coronary angioplasty is a medical practice used to open blocked or narrowed coronary (heart) arteries. The procedure improves blood flow to the heart.
