Statement from the Attorney General's Office
TALLAHASSEE, FL – The Attorney General's Office released the following
statement regarding a medical procedure Attorney General McCollum underwent
“Last week, Attorney General McCollum's physicians discovered a singular
partial arterial blockage during a routine screening. At his physicians'
advice, the Attorney General underwent additional tests earlier this week
to determine the best course of treatment.
“Today, the partial blockage was successfully remedied by the placement of
a stent, a small metal tube that is inserted permanently into an artery to
improve blood flow. Attorney General McCollum's physicians expect that he
will have made a full recovery within the next few days and will be able to
return to his normal activities soon.”
