(WASHINGTON) -- U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent a coronary catheterization on Wednesday.
According to a press release from the court, Ginsburg experienced discomfort while partaking in "routine exercise." Ginsburg was taken to a MedStar Washington Hospital Center, where a coronary blockage was found and a stent was placed in her right coronary artery.
Ginsburg is "resting comfortably" and is expected to be released within 48 hours.
Despite being diagnosed with colon cancer in 1999 and pancreatic cancer in 2009, Ginsburg, appointed to the Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton in 1993, has never missed a day of oral arguments due to medical treatment.
The court is set to hear arguments on Monday.
