Justice Ginsburg in hospital after procedure

by Paul Goldberg

Per WashingtonExaminer Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure Wednesday, the high court announced.

She will remain in the hospital until the end of the week and is resting comfortably.

The procedure to revise a bile duct stent that was put in last August was done at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.

“According to her doctors, stent revisions are common occurrences and the procedure, performed using endoscopy and medical imaging guidance, was done to minimize the risk of future infection,” the Supreme Court’s press statement read.

Earlier this month, the 87 year old justice announced she has been treated for cancer lesions in her liver and would continue receiving treatment.
