Brazilian President Michel Temer underwent a heart procedure Friday night at São Paulo’s Sírio-Libanês Hospital described by doctors as “non-invasive.” 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. The procedure is conducted via probes and does not require conventional surgery. They said Temer will likely be released from the hospital Monday and can resume a normal work load soon after. Temer is 77. Doctors said the obstruction was detected as part of routine medical examinations.
