Argentine president Cristina Fernandez underwent this week several medical exams which have revealed “normal results”, announced presidential spokesman Alfredo Scoccimarro at a press conference in Government House in Buenos Aires.

 On Wednesday morning the Argentine leader attended the Fundación Favaloro clinic to undergo a series of cardiologic tests already been scheduled.

On Monday, the team in charge of the head of state’s outpatient treatment carried out a neuro-image exam with “positive” results allowing Cristina Fernandez to resume aerial travel.

In fact the president is expected to fly to her private residence at the Patagonian province of Santa Cruz on the weekend. The president that normally flies to Santa Cruz on weekends will have been away from El Calafate for almost three months since she underwent subdural cranial surgery to drain two blood clots.

Originally the check-up had been cardiovascular, since apparently the president had some problems with one of her arms when the clots were discovered. Having successfully overcome the cranial surgery and convalescence the president completed this week the cardiac exams, which revealed “normal results”.

Following the cranial surgery the presidential medical team had banned all flights plus insisting she rests and recovers absent from all possible stress factors.
