 Assam Governor Gets A Permanent Pacemaker

Official sources revealed that Assam Governor J.B. Patnaik underwent a successful surgery for implantation of a pacemaker last week.

The 85-year-old veteran Congress leader was discharged from Asian Heart Institute (AHI) Monday and is currently recuperating at Raj Bhavan in Mumbai.

According to the sources, Patnaik was brought from Guwahati and admitted to AHI, Bandra, last week following complaints of breathing troubles.

He underwent an angiography and later a permanent pacemaker implantation procedure was carried out by a cardiology team headed by Dr. Tilak Suvarna.

A pacemaker is a small device placed in the chest or the abdomen to help control abnormal heart rhythms. The device uses electrical pulses to prompt the heart to beat at a normal rate.

Patnaik, a three-time former chief minister of Odisha, has been the Assam governor since 2009.

Patnaik is accompanied by his wife and a secretarial team from Assam.

He is likely to take rest for some more days before resuming his normal gubernatorial functions in Assam.
