Last Words Of Raju Srivastav
He had angioplasty on August 10
Also known as balloon angioplasty and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, this process is used to widen the blocked or narrowed down arteries and veins which happen due to arterial atherosclerosis.
The purpose behind the angioplasty process is to break the fatty plaque build up in the blood vessel and is recommended to those whose heart function has already come at risk.
Cardiac arrest during workout
Srivastava’s health condition has sent waves of shock and sorrow among his fans and followers. During the time he had the heart attack several questions were raised on how safe workouts are for heart health. As per his cousin, he was doing the regular routine workout.
As per experts cardiac attacks during workouts are inevitable in those cases where the blockages in the blood vessels have been ignored or are undiagnosed. Sometimes workouts can trigger electrical disturbance in the heart leading to cardiac arrest. Strenuous exercise can also cause the fatty plaques to rupture leading to heart attack.
Immensely popular as Gajodhar, Srivastava, had an illustrious career in the industry. Apart from the entertainment industry he also had a political career. He had contested from Kanpur in the 2014 Lok Sabha Election as a Samajwadi party candidate. However, citing reasons he left the party and joined BJP later.
