Former U.S President Jimmy Carter has been admitted to an Atlanta hospital for a procedure to relieve pressure on his brain, caused by a number of falls, the Carter centre reported.
The procedure is scheduled for Tuesday morning.
According to a statement released by the Carter Center on Monday, Carter “was admitted to Emory University Hospital in the evening for a procedure to relieve pressure on his brain, caused by bleeding due to his recent falls,” adding that the operation would take place on Tuesday morning.
“Carter, 95, has fallen at least three times this year, and required hip replacement surgery in the spring. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2015, but has since said he is cancer-free”, the statement added.
