Ford Undergoes Angioplasty

What no “Mayo” joke? Former Preisdent Ford has undergone angioplasty at the Mayo Clinic.

Former President Gerald Ford underwent a successful angioplasty procedure at the Mayo Clinic Thursday to reduce or eliminate blockages in his coronary arteries, his office said Friday.

Angioplasty involves inserting a catheter-guided balloon to expand blocked arteries.

“During the procedure, stents were placed in two of his coronary arteries in order to increase the blood flow through those arteries,” according to a written statement released by Ford’s office.
