Shetty arrives in Dhaka for Quader’s medical care

Dhaka – Leading Indian cardiologist Devi Shetty arrived in Dhaka Monday to review the health condition of ruling Bangladesh Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader, who has been undergoing medical treatment for heart complications.

Quader’s condition has been improved further as he got back to conscience Monday, a day after he was admitted to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, according to party leaders.

“He has fully regained consciousness,” said Biplob Barua, deputy office secretary of the Awami League.

Devi Shetty, an India cardiac surgeon, was received at the Shahjalal International Airport in the noontime by Professor Harisul Hauqe of the BMSSU, and taken straight to the hospital to review medical reports of Obaidul Quader.   

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, was diagnosed with three arterial blocks. One of the blocks was removed by stenting.

Earlier on Sunday, two specialists, a technician and a nurse from Mount Elizabeth Hospital flew into Dhaka to take care of Quader.

Quader was admitted to the hospital on Sunday morning after he felt chest pain and the doctors identified three blocks in his arteries.

President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina visited the 67-year old politician at the BMSSU.

Bangladeshi specialists said the condition Quader was stable now, but “he was not still out of danger”.
