Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg Hospitalized For “Minimally-Invasive” Surgery

Courtesy of ZeroHedge View original post here.

Less than two weeks after her previous hospitalization, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is back in Sloan Kettering for a procedure to revise a bile-duct stent. She is expected to be released by the end of the week.

Full Statement:

Justice Ginsburg underwent a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure today at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City to revise a bile duct scent that was originally placed at Sloan Kettering in August 2019.

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 Justice is resting comfortably and expects to be released from the hospital by the end of the week.

Tow weeks ago, she confirmed that was living with a recurrence of liver cancer.

On May 19, I began a course of chemotherapy (gemcitabine) to treat a recurrence of cancer. A periodic scan in February followed by a biopsy revealed lesions on my liver. My recent hospitalizations to remove gall stones and treat an infection were unrelated to this recurrence.

Immunotherapy first essayed proved unsuccessful. The chemotherapy course, however, is yielding positive results. Satisfied that my treatment course is now clear, I am providing this information.

My most recent scan on July 7 indicated significant reduction of the liver lesions and no new disease. I am tolerating chemotherapy well and am encouraged by the success of my current treatment. I will continue bi-weekly chemotherapy to keep my cancer at bay, and am able to maintain an active daily routine. Throughout, I have kept up with opinion writing and all other Court work.

I have often said I would remain a member of the Court as long as I can do the job full steam. I remain fully able to do that.

At 87, Ginsburg is the oldest member of the U.S. Supreme Court, and a stalwart of its liberal wing.
