    29/05/2002 22:52:54

    Former prime minister Constantine Mitsotakis on Wednesday successfully underwent corrective non-surgical correction of an abdominal arterial aneurysm at the American Health Center in Phoenix, Arizona.

    A newly developed procedure was used by the hospital's medical staff on the former premier and main opposition New Democracy (ND) honourary president, which requires only local anesthesia, while it is not even called ''surgery'', but ''procedure''.

    Mitsotakis will remain in the hospital two to three days and he will return to Athens by the middle of next week, if his post-op recovery is as expected.

    His daughter Dora Bakoyianni, an ND deputy and Athens mayoral hopeful, was at his side and is expected to return to Athens on Sunday.
