Kennedy in Surgery on Blocked Artery

BOSTON (AP) -- Sen. Edward M. Kennedy underwent surgery Friday after doctors discovered a partially blocked artery in his neck during an examination of his back, which was injured in a 1964 airplane crash.

Kennedy, 75, underwent the hourlong procedure on his left carotid artery at Massachusetts General Hospital, his office announced. The operation, performed by Dr. Richard Cambria, the hospital's chief of vascular surgery, was completed without complications, and the Massachusetts Democrat was expected to be released in several days.

"As part of a routine evaluation of Senator Kennedy's back and spine, MRI studies picked up an unrelated, asymptomatic blockage in the senator's left carotid artery," said a statement from Kennedy's Washington office. "This morning, Senator Kennedy underwent preventive surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital to remove the blockage."

Kennedy is in relatively good health for his age, but he has been bothered by an aching back since the crash, which killed a pilot and one of Kennedy's aides. Then-Sen. Birch Bayh, D-Ind., who was traveling with Kennedy, pulled him from the wreckage but Kennedy suffered a back injury, punctured lung, broken ribs and internal bleeding.

I saw the headline and thought maybe he got injured doing a Greg Louganis into a vat of Johnny Walker Red.

My mistake.

Just imagine if medicine in the U.S. was already socialized. He would have to wait a month for this surgury.

Hope you have a speedy recovery Ted.

Where do we send get-well cards? And does anyone know how much a postcard to Canada costs these days?

Oh, wait - the surgery was performed at a hospital in the US?

Kennedy is not in surgery. Can we return to the regularily scheduled program?

Too bad Mary Jo didn't have a guardian angel.

I don’t wish the man ill, as much as I despise him.

OTOH, I can’t say as I really care much.

People get old, they get sick; it’s what happens in life. And it is always happening to a lot of people at any given time.

I hope the Senator recovers and goes to good health.

And maybe the short sabbatical gives him some time to reflect on
the legacy of his brothers John and Robert.

I’ve had some major thoracic surgery. And I don’t wish it on anybody.

Maybe except a Hitler, Tojo, Stalin or their likes.

“Just imagine if medicine in the U.S. was already socialized. He would have to wait a month for this surgury.”

The elites in these socialized ‘health care’ systems never have to wait. Waiting’s for peasants.

Too bad that comments were made that necessitated pulling it. But, it says a lot more for FR than DU that the thread was pulled. We have some dipsticks, but on the whole, a much classier bunch here than to be found on DU. A lot less tin foil in use, too.

It’s back up and locked as a duplicate to this one, but it has a new (better) title, new source, and new atribution. I get to keep it in the count of threads posted.
