Bill Clinton was hospitalized Thursday for chest pains.
New York (WiredPRNews.com) – Former President Bill Clinton is expected to be released from a New York hospital Friday after undergoing a procedure to place two stents inside of a clogged artery. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Clinton went into the hospital on Thursday for purported chest pains.
As noted in the report, Clinton underwent quadruple bypass surgery in 2004. Adviser Douglas Band is quoted by the AP as stating that Clinton was, “in good spirits and will continue to focus on the work of his foundation and Haiti’s relief and long-term recovery efforts,” following the surgery.
Cardiologist and University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine dean, Dr. William O’Neill, is further quoted as stating of the procedure and Clinton’s prognosis long-term, “It doesn’t really affect long-term survival. It’s a quality-of-life thing. He’ll have to have careful monitoring, regular stress tests.”
