New Delhi: Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu, who underwent angioplasty at the premier AIIMS hospital, was discharged on Saturday.

Naidu, 68, had undergone an angiography on Friday which showed a significant blockage in one of the main arteries and to treat the condition a stent was placed, a senior doctor said.

All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) authorities said that all his parameters are normal. Naidu has been advised complete rest for three days and not have any visitors during this period.

Naidu had visited the AIIMS for a complete body checkup after becoming the vice-president in August. Some tests had pointed to problems related to the heart following which the procedure was performed.

The procedure was done under the supervision of professor Balram Bhargava of the Department of Cardiology.
