WASHINGTON - Former Vice President Dick Cheney was at George Washington University Hospital Monday in Washington, D.C. after experiencing chest pains.

Cheney's assistant, Peter Long, said in a statement late Monday that the 69-year-old Cheney was resting comfortably and his doctors were evaluating the situation.

Two doctors at George Washington University Hospital said Cheney was stable but may have additional treatment Tuesday. "We don't know what the plan is," one physician told NBC News.

Cheney had an angiogram to allow doctors to look in his coronary arteries with the results indicating the possibility of additional treatment. No further information was immediately available, including when he was admitted to the hospital.

Cheney has had a long history of heart problems, including four heart attacks, starting when he was 37 years old. He has had quadruple bypass surgery and two artery-clearing angioplasties. In 2001, he had a special pacemaker implanted in his chest. The pacemaker's battery was replaced in 2007, and then the entire device was replaced. In 2007 he also had an abnormal heart rhythm in 2007 and an electric shock was given to restore a normal rhythm.
