Argentina’s Fernandez Leaves Hospital After Blood Clot Surgery

Oct. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner left a Buenos Aires hospital today after an Oct. 8 surgery to remove a blood clot close to her brain.

Fernandez left the Favaloro Foundation clinic in Buenos Aires in good spirits, spokesman Alfredo Scoccimarro said in a televised address on state-run news agency Telam. Fernandez, 60, was diagnosed with a subdural hematoma on Oct. 5, eight weeks after sustaining a blow to the head.

Fernandez first took power in 2007, succeeding her husband Nestor Kirchner, who died in 2010. Before the surgery, doctors had advised that she rest for a month, which would have blocked her from campaigning with candidates before the Oct. 27 midterm congressional elections.
