Washington (CNN)— Vice President Dick Cheney, who has a history of heart ailments dating back to age 37, finished his annual physical exam Saturday morning with no problems detected.
Spokeswoman Megan Mitchell said the 67-year old’s “cardiac status remains stable.”
Cheney underwent a series of tests that showed no sign of a recurrence of the irregular heart beat detected by physicians in November 2007 - later determined to be atrial fibrillation.
The routine check-up, which occurred at George Washington University Hospital in Washington, DC, also included a physical exam, an electrocardiogram, and an “imaging of the stents placed in the arteries behind his knees in 2005,” said Mitchell.
Mr. Cheney is said to have returned to the Naval Observatory where he will resume his normal schedule
