Former President William Clinton was hospitalized this afternoon; he was admitted to Columbia's New York Presbyterian Hospital after complaining of chest pains.
Famous for his legendary poor eating habits, doctors realized that ordinary measures would probably be defeated in the long term. Instead, they opted for something different; they inserted two stents of an experimental design into one of the President's coronary arteries.

Nicknamed the "Bacon Double Cheeseburger Memorial Super Highway," these stents were manufactured for people with an LDL of 750 and over.
