Yashwant Sinha undergoes pacemaker surgery
New Delhi: BJP leader Yashwant Sinha
underwent a pacemaker surgery at AIIMS here and his condition
is stable, doctors said on Friday.
"He had undergone a pacemaker surgery three days back. It
is a minor procedure related to the heart. His condition is
stable," a senior doctor with AIIMS said.
A pacemaker surgery involves replacement of the natural
pacemaker with an artificial one that is small,
battery-powered device that sends out weak electrical impulses
that cause the heart muscle to contract.
The natural one is replaced with an artificial one when
the heart is beating too slowly.
The 74-year-old former Union Minister, who was admitted on
February 6, is recovering at the CN Tower building of the
hospital and is under the supervision of Dr VK Behl, head of
cardiology at AIIMS.
"His post operative recovery is very well. We will
discharge him soon," the doctor said.
