Ex Youth and Sports minister undergoes biopsy at Vienna clinic

Monica Iacob-Ridzi, a former minister of Youth and Sports, underwent a bone marrow biopsy Tuesday, at the Vienna clinic where she arrived on Monday, Mediafax announces. “The surgery started at 8.00 AM and ended at 11.46 AM, but the proper operation took 46 minutes. The whole procedure was made under total anesthesia. She was moved from intensive care to a regular hospital room Tuesday evening,” sources close to the Iacob-Ridzi family told the press. The surgery was absolutely necessary in view of a correct diagnosis, as the result of analyses made in Bucharest last December was inconclusive. Iacob-Ridzi was admitted to the Bucharest University Hospital at the end of November 2010, with a bone marrow infection, the spokesman of the hospital, Bogdan Popescu said at that time. The former minister and acting member of the Parliament has a bone marrow disease that has been aggravated by the infection, added the source.
