Megastar Rajinikanth underwent successful carotid artery revascularization treatment at a hospital in Chennai on Friday. The actor is recovering well and should be out in a few days, a senior Kauvery hospital official said.
Rajinikanth was admitted to Kauvery hospital on Thursday following an episode of vertigo.
“He was carefully evaluated by the expert panel of physicians and was advised to undergo carotid artery revascularization,” Dr. Aravindan Selvaraj, co-founder and executive director, said in a statement.
“The procedure was successful today (October 29) and he is recovering well. He should be discharged from the hospital in a few days,” added Dr Selvaraj.
Rajinikanth, who received the Dadasaheb Phalke Prize on Thursday, tweeted that he watched his upcoming film “Annatthe” on Wednesday with his grandson.
Last year, Rajinikanth decided not to take a much-anticipated political plunge citing his medical condition.
At that time, Rajinikanth said doctors informed him that the fluctuating blood pressure would affect his transplanted kidney.
