Rio Leci Brandão has been hospitalized since January 15 at Hospital Samaritano Paulista in São Paulo for treatment of vascular problems, according to a statement from her parliamentary office.
“The artist Leci Brandão had a routine checkup and doctors discovered new vascular problems. Leci had already undergone a procedure for the same problem the previous year and doctors concluded that her recovery would be more effective if she stayed in the hospital for some time.” “Leci's condition is stable. The deputy continues to rest and is doing well,” the statement said.
The 79yearold singer and state representative for PCdoB was hospitalized in September last year due to a vascular problem in one of her legs. When she got off from São Paulo in Rio de Janeiro, she felt unwell.
As one of the country's premier samba dancers, she had to undergo angioplasty, a surgery to open an artery. She was treated at the Copa d'Or Hospital in Copacabana.
