Sen. John Warner was hospitalized Tuesday.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Influential Republican Sen. John Warner of Virginia was hospitalized Tuesday with a heart condition, according to a statement from the senator's office.
Doctors at Inova Fairfax Hospital performed a procedure to correct atrial fibrillation, the statement said, and a follow-up, routine procedure is scheduled for Wednesday.
"His doctors fully anticipate that Senator Warner will be home this weekend and back to work next week," the statement said.
The statement said Warner, 80, "handled planned appointments" at his office Tuesday morning, checking in with the Capitol Physician's Office mid-morning. He returned to his office for more meetings after that, and left in the afternoon for an appointment at the hospital.
Atrial fibrillation is a heart rhythm disorder that usually involves a rapid heart rate.
Warner said last month he would not seek re-election in 2008.
