Posted: Sunday, February 20, 2011

JUNEAU — Democrat Rep. Max Gruenberg of Anchorage will return to the legislature next week after successful heart surgery.

A statement from the Alaska House Democratic Caucus says two stents were removed during an operation in Anchorage.

According to the American Heart Association, stents are typically used to hold open a constricted artery after heart surgery.

Gruenberg, in office since 2003, currently serves as House Minority floor leader.
