Sen. Edward Kennedy Hospitalized After Seizure
Date:5/17/2008

tion. Doctors cleared the blockage, and Kennedy was released to convalesce in Hyannisport. The Globe reported at the time that the blockage could have caused a stroke, but that the chief of vascular surgery at Massachusetts general described the procedure as "routine, uneventful, and successful."

According to the John F. Kennedy Memorial Library, Sen. Kennedy's father, former U.S. Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy, suffered a series of strokes in 1961 at the age of 73. The thromboses left him virtually paralyzed and unable to speak. He died in 1969.

According to the National Health Library, a stroke occurs once every 45 seconds in the United States. Strokes happen when a blood vessel carrying blood to the brain is blocked by a blood clot. This is called an ischemic stroke. When a blood vessel breaks open, causing blood to leak into the brain, a hemorrhagic stroke occurs.

Kennedy is the youngest of 9 children, and became a U.S. senator in 1962. His older brother, John F. Kennedy, who was elected president in 1960, was assassinated in 1963. Robert Kennedy, who was also a U.S. Senator, was assassinated in 1968 during his presidential campaign.
