Quader likely to undergo bypass surgery

Dhaka – As health condition of the ailing Bangladeshi politician has been improving at a Singapore hospital, physicians consider bypass surgery to remove his arterial blocks.

Obaidul Quader, the general secretary of the ruling Awami League party, has now been undergoing treatment at Mount Elizabeth Hospital, where he was transported by an air ambulance on Monday, a day after he fell sick in Dhaka.

State-run Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha news agency reported quoting physicians in Singapore that Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, will undergo a bypass surgery at the Singapore health facility.        

“He is likely to undergo a bypass surgery at Mount Elizabeth Hospital here ‘within days’,” Dr Abu Naser Rizvi, who has been staying with the minister in Singapore, is quoted to have said on Tuesday.

The doctors in the hospital found infections in his kidneys and he could be fit for the surgery once the infections were contained.

His condition, however, is stable now and gradually improving, Rizvi said.

Quader was flew to Singapore Monday evening for better medical management after being advised Indian leading cardiologist Devi Shetty. The minister was initially admitted to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University on Sunday. He was diagnosed with three arterial blocks.

Quader’s wife Isratunnesa Quader has also been accompanying the minister at Mount Elizabeth Hospital.
