Melania Trump's Emergency Kidney Procedure Explained

Share

President Trump this afternoon spent more than an hour visiting with Melania after she underwent an embolization at Walter Reed medical center for what the White House is terming a benign kidney condition.

One example of a benign growth on the kidneys that may be treated with an embolization procedure is an angiomyolipoma, or a benign collection of fat and muscle.

A spokeswoman for the 48-year-old first lady says the procedure was successful and there were no complications.

"It does tend to happen more in women than in men and it tends to be in middle age", LaPook said.

The Trump administration has avoided that description, and noted that the city's final borders should be decided by the parties. The opening of the new embassy in Jerusalem coincides with the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the state of Israel.

Mrs Trump joined her husband last month to host the prime minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, for a two-day summit at the Trumps' Florida estate, and the Trumps hosted Emmanuel Macron, the president of France, at the White House on a three-day state visit, including a lavish state dinner.

The statement vaguely described the procedure as "an embolization procedure to treat a benign kidney condition" but offered no additional details about the first lady's condition or treatment.

She underwent the surgery at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre in Bethesda on Monday, New York Post reported. Through that tube, they send material like gelatin sponges or platinum coils, which sits in the blood vessel. They send a tube through the labyrinthine vessels, then another tube through that one to reach the smaller blood vessels.

While there's no indication whether Mrs. Trump's procedure was an emergency or planned, LaPook said after this kind of procedure, it would not be at all unusual to keep her in the hospital for observation for a number of days. He is expected to visit the hospital shortly, Grisham said.
