Sharon vital signs stable after surgery

Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon was transferred to intensive care after seven hours of surgery, and his vital signs are stable, the director of Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem said today.

The director, Shlomo Mor-Yosef, said Sharon remained in a serious condition.

He said the surgery stopped the massive bleeding in Sharon’s brain, and that he was transferred to the intensive care unit after the surgery.

“The prime minister has had a CT scan that showed the cerebral haemorrhaging has stopped,” Mor-Yosef said.

“The prime minister is now being transferred to the neurosurgical intensive care unit. In the unit, he will be treated, observed and cared for.

“At this point, all the vital signs are ... stable. The prime minister is still in serious condition,” the director said.
