Buenos Aires: A computer scan of the Argentine President's brain shows "satisfactory" results from surgery to remove a blood clot from inside her skull.

Thursday's update from President Cristina Fernandez's doctors also says that her vital signs are normal.

The doctors say she'll remain in intensive care for now, and no details have been released about how quickly she can get back to work.

Vice President Amado Boudou is nominally in charge of the government.

Boudou cancelled an appearance on Wednesday and travelled on Thursday to Catamarca province, 700 miles (1153 kilometres) from the capital after Cabinet chief Juan Manuel Abal Medina told a radio interviewer that "the only one who has the power is the president".
