Sharon Taken to surgery - possible "blood on the brain"

Scotsman.com News - Latest News - 'Unwell' Sharon taken to hospitalIsraeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has been taken to hospital, his office said, after feeling unwell.

Israeli media reported that he apparently suffered another stroke or possibly a heart ailment.


The announcement said he was taken to Jerusalem's Hadassah Hospital, where he was scheduled to undergo a heart procedure on Thursday.

Sharon's office said his personal doctor was with him, and he was fully conscious.

He was being taken by ambulance, a drive of more than an hour from his home in the Negev Desert in Israel's south, instead of by helicopter.

On December 18, Sharon was taken to Hadassah Hospital from his office after suffering a mild stroke.

Doctors said he would not suffer long-term effects from the stroke, but they discovered a birth defect in his heart that apparently contributed to the stroke.

He was to enter the same hospital on Thursday morning for a procedure to correct the defect.

Channel 10 News quoted Sharon's spokesman as saying that the symptoms were not severe, and reported that he was feeling pressure or pain in his chest.

Another hospital, Soroka in Beersheba, is much closer to the ranch, and Israeli media were concluding that his condition was not serious. Channel 10 said the heart procedure might be advanced.

Since the stroke, Sharon has been receiving blood thinners to try to prevent a recurrence of the clotting that caused the stroke.
