Brazilian President Michel Temer was released from São Paulo’s Sírio-Libanês Hospital on Monday, three days after a non-invasive medical procedure to clear clogged blood vessels around his heart. Temer is expected to resume his duties in Brasilia on Tuesday. Doctors said they detected “significant blockage” in three arteries leading to Temer’s heart. They subjected all three arteries to angioplasty, a procedure opening clogged blood vessels, placing permanent stents in two of the arteries to prevent future blockage. Temer is 77.
