Before he was elected mayor in 2001, Michael R. Bloomberg had surgery to have two stents implanted in a coronary artery because of blockage in his heart, a person with knowledge of Mr. Bloombergs health said last night.
Mayor Bloomberg has not had heart disease since the stents were put in, according to this person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because Mr. Bloomberg had not authorized release of the information. The mayor is in excellent health today, this person said.
Newsweek magazine first reported the implants this week. The person with knowledge of the mayors health said the procedure took place in 2000 after Mr. Bloomberg complained of discomfort and tiredness. NY1 News also reported last night that Mr. Bloomberg was advised by a doctor to undergo the procedure and that he recovered quickly.
A spokesman for the mayor, Stu Loeser, declined to comment on the stents or on Mr. Bloombergs health last night.
Mr. Bloomberg has said he has no plans to run for president, but some of his senior advisers have been talking him up over the last 19 months as a potential candidate in 2008. He has been traveling to several presidential swing states in recent months to talk about gun control, immigration, and other national issues.

Man. Saw the headline and first thing I thought of was sex change.
The guy’s just not all there.
Well, I’m very happy that Bloomie is OK, I hope he has a long and happy life IN NEW YORK CITY!
Never knew Mike the Midget had a heart.
I had a surgical procedure in 2000 that inserted a stent in my artery. It’s no big deal.
Who gives a rats @$$ about this poor little rich boy. His national asperations will NEVER materialize because of his total unacceptability with the core of America.
If this billionaire fruitloop runs as an independent the best he will do is take votes away from Hitlery or Hussein Obama.
What a Dooooshb@g he is.
I am not a Bloomie fan by any means, but Bloomberg is a self-made 'rich boy'.
Wrong. You don't get a stint and say you're cured. A stint is just a patch for an ongoing disease.
They are capable of even taking down a plane or disabling a tank.
Literally, elephant guns, for $2K, single shot, bolt action antitank weapons for World War I type armor, i.e. 0.5" steel plate, not modern tanks. $8K gets the semi-automatic variant. This is just neoCOM hysterics.
They just announced that they killed "comprehensive" Shamnesty. Hallelujah!
FReepmail me if you want on or off my New York ping list.
Thanks for the ping!
Correct! I also have 2 stints. Major artery in ... major artery out.
