Sharon Stone Goes Home

Sharon Stone has been released from a hospital after being treated for more than a week for bleeding on her brain.

Stone's doctor said he expects her to make a full recovery.

"Sharon Stone is completely intact neurologically and she will have no medical restrictions on her personal or professional activities," said Michael Lawton, chief of cerebrovascular surgery at the University of California, San Francisco.

The 43-year-old actress was admitted to the university's hospital on Sept. 29 with a severe headache and was released on Sunday. Doctors found that a tear in an artery at the base of her skull had caused bleeding in the space between her brain and the middle membrane covering the brain, Lawton said. The condition is known as a subarachnoid hemorrhage.

A team of surgeons last week performed an endovascular coil embolization, which involves inserting a catheter in the groin and using it to place a "mass of coils" that blocks blood flow through the artery, Lawton said.

Doctors feared at first that a weakened blood vessel had burst, but two tests found no such aneurysm, according to Stone's publicist, Cindi Berger.

Stone thanked her fans for their support and prayers.
