(Updates Kanjorski’s condition)
WASHINGTON, March 20 (Reuters) - Rep. Paul Kanjorski, chairman of the capital markets subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives, was released on Tuesday from the intensive care unit of a Boston hospital after successful triple bypass surgery, according to a statement from his office.
The Pennsylvania Democrat is expected to return to work in mid-April after Congress’ spring recess, the statement said.
Kanjorski, 69, underwent surgery to bypass blockages in three blood vessels surrounding his heart.
The operation was routinely scheduled as a result of tests and was not the result of a heart attack, the statement said.
“Congressman Kanjorski is recovering well. There were no complications,” said Dr. Lawrence Cohn, who did the surgery.
