Clinton is being treated with blood thinners to dissolve the clot

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Top U.S. diplomat Hillary Clinton was in a New York hospital yesterday because of a potentially dangerous blood clot near her brain, but doctors said she should make a full recovery.

Clinton, still in hospital early on New Year’s Day, was admitted to the New York Presbyterian Hospital Dec. 30 following the discovery, and is being treated with blood thinners to dissolve the clot.

They described it as “a clot in the vein that is situated in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear.” But they were also quick to offer reassurances saying in their statement that “it did not result in a stroke or neurological damage”.
