Former President George W. Bush underwent surgery on Tuesday to have a stent  inserted after a blockage was discovered in an artery, his spokesman  said.

A written statement said a “blockage was discovered in an artery in his  heart” during the former president’s annual physical exam.

“The procedure was performed successfully this morning, without complication,  at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital,” his office said.

“President Bush is in high spirits, eager to return home tomorrow and resume  his normal schedule on Thursday. He is grateful to the skilled medical  professionals who have cared for him. He thanks his family, friends, and fellow  citizens for their prayers and well wishes. And he encourages us all to get our  regular check-ups.”
