Cheney had heart surgery this weekend

Filed under:

According to The White House this past weekend Vice President Dick Cheney had minor heart surgery to replace an implanted cardiac device intended to "monitor and correct his heart rhythm" (it's a an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator). The procedure was performed at George Washington University and was without complication, and apparently Cheney was back to his normal schedule later that same day. Cheney has suffered 4 heart attacks (whoa), the first way back when he was only 37, and at the young age of 66 has already had 2 angioplasties and a quadruple heart bypass surgery.
