The statement specified that such procedures are common and done in an effort to avoid future infection, according to Ginsburg's doctors.

Ginsburg, who has had a series of health issues, said two weeks ago she was receiving chemotherapy treatment for a recurrence of cancer after a biopsy revealed lesions on her liver. Ginsburg had gone to the hospital after experiencing fever and chills and was treated for a possible infection. The stent had originally been placed last August, when Ginsburg was treated for a cancerous tumour on her pancreas.
