Nobel Winner Oscar Arias Hospitalized to Correct Problem with Pacemaker

SAN JOSE – Costa Rica’s former president and 1987 Nobel Peace prizewinner, Oscar Arias, is in the hospital after his pacemaker developed a problem, local media reported Sunday.

Arias, 74, is in stable condition at the Clinica Biblica Hospital in San Jose, and he is scheduled to return home on Monday, hospital director Jorge Cortes told reporters.

Arias, who governed Costa Rica from 1986-1990 and then again from 2006-2010, was admitted to the medical center to undergo a routine adjustment of the device doctors had implanted to control his heart rhythm.

According to Cortes, the procedure is a “very normal” occurrence for anyone with a pacemaker.

In the past, Arias had to undergo surgery for difficulties with high blood pressure.

Last May, the former president also had to undergo orthopedic surgery after he ruptured a tendon in his right foot.
