It is understood that the PM’s medical team could consider the options of introducing fresh stents or, if this is not viable, a cardiac bypass procedure.
An official PMO statement on Wednesday said the PM had undergone "diagnostic evaluation" and "treatment procedures which have been recommended would be undertaken in a few days". It was said on Tuesday that Singh was being given an overall medical check-up.
