Samsung’s chairman Lee Kun Hee is recovering from emergency cardiac surgery that he received at the Samsung Medical Center in Seoul.  The medical center predicted a successful recovery since Lee was treated quickly at a hospital near his home before being moved to the center for surgery.

Lee suffered breathing difficulties at home around 10:56 p.m. Saturday and was rushed to Soonchunhyang University Hospital where he received emergency CPR. Moving to the Samsung Medical Center at 0:45 a.m. on Sunday, he received surgery to widen a blood vessel leading to the heart.   Doctors say they are monitoring Lee's condition in light of his age and respiratory problems as he had lung cancer some 15 years ago.
