Bill Clinton undergoes more heart surgery

Former President Bill Clinton, who had major work done on his heart nearly six years ago, was admitted to a New York hospital today after complaining of chest pains.

His spokesman, Doug Band, sent out this press release Thursday afternoon:

“Today President Bill Clinton was admitted to the Columbia Campus of New York Presbyterian Hospital after feeling discomfort in his chest. Following a visit to his cardiologist, he underwent a procedure to place two stents in one of his coronary arteries. President Clinton is in good spirits, and will continue to focus on the work of his Foundation and Haiti’s relief and long-term recovery efforts. In 2004, President Clinton underwent a successful quadruple bypass operation to free four blocked arteries.”

Clinton is 63 years-old.
