Evangelist Graham Leaves for Home After Mayo Clinic Check for Coronary Disease
Evangelist Billy Graham left Friday for his home in North Carolina after a three-day Mayo Clinic checkup, which included a stress test and angiogram to check for coronary artery disease.
He was released from St. Mary’s Hospital on Thursday morning.
Graham said that the angiogram--a diagnostic X-ray of the heart--was negative and the results of all his other tests were excellent. He said he never had any cardiac symptoms but had come to the clinic to have doctors examine a diaphragmatic hernia.
Graham, 66, said he expects to return in January or February to have the hernia rechecked.
