SCAI Statement on the Hospitalization of Former President Bill Clinton
Date:2/12/2010

WASHINGTON, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Members of the interventional cardiology community wish former President Bill Clinton a quick recovery following his recent hospitalization for angioplasty and stenting.

Like Mr. Clinton, many patients taking the appropriate prescribed medications find that additional treatment may be needed to reduce debilitating symptoms like chest pain.

Mr. Clinton's experience also demonstrates how important it is for patients to listen to their body's warning signals. Mr. Clinton's quick response to his symptoms led to prompt and effective care and may have prevented a much more serious incident. All cardiac patients should be aware that heart disease is chronic – that the disease often progresses even after successful revascularization procedures such as bypass surgery, which Mr. Clinton underwent six years ago.
