Argentinian President Fernandez Improving After Brain Surgery

By    |   Friday, 11 Oct 2013 10:09 AM

Argentinian President Cristina de Kirchner’s condition has improved following brain surgery earlier this week, the Buenos Aires Herald reported.
 
A presidential spokesman said Thursday that Fernandez, 60, “improves favorably” after undergoing surgery two days earlier to treat a subdural hematoma — a blood clot on the brain’s surface.
 
Argentinian officials have provided few additional details thus far about her surgery or treatment.
 
In August, Fernandez suffered a trauma to the brain. She underwent a brain scan, and doctors found normal results with no symptoms,according to CNN. On Saturday, doctors at a Buenos Aires hospital performed a neurological evaluation and discovered the hematoma.
 
After Tuesday’s surgery, presidential spokesman Alfredo Scoccomarro said Fernandez’ surgery “went very well,” the BBC reported. After doctors discovered the clot, they ordered Fernandez to rest for at least one month.
 
Vice-President Amado Boudou has assumed duties as acting president of Argentina.
