October 11, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Rep. John D. Dingell (D-Mich.), the longest-serving House member, was recovering after undergoing surgery to replace a stent in an artery, his office said.

Dingell, 77, had the stent inserted in May to open a blocked artery. During a follow-up examination, doctors noticed the stent was narrowing and decided to replace it.

Dr. Bruce Clemons said Dingell's heart is healthy, according to a statement from the congressman's office. Dingell was expected to remain overnight at Bethesda Naval Hospital in Maryland and be released today.
