Post-Surgery, Full Recovery Expected for Clinton
Former President Clinton is "recovering normally" after a successful quadruple coronary bypass surgery Monday, said the surgeon who led the operation at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia. Doctors expect Clinton to make a full recovery, despite the extensive heart disease they repaired. Blockage had reached more than 90 percent in several arteries, and Clinton was in danger of a "substantial" heart attack, said the hospital's chief of cardiology. Hear NPR's Richard Knox.
