Former US President Bill Clinton in Good Spirits
Former US President Bill Clinton is said to be in “good spirits” after surgeons placed two stents in one of his coronary arteries in a bid to increase blood flow to his heart, at a New York hospital last night, say media reports.
The procedure, commonly referred to as angioplasty, does not require an incision or general anesthesia and the patient can normally go home a day after it is administered, the reports added citing the National Institutes of Health website.
Clinton was admitted to the New York Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan after he complained of “discomfort in his chest”.
Clinton had recently returned from a visit to earthquake-struck Haiti, he was in the Caribbean country as a United Nations-appointed co-ordinator of relief operations.
Clinton, in 2004, underwent a quadruple bypass operation to free four blocked arteries.
