WASHINGTON –US First Lady Melania Trump returned to the White House on Saturday after undergoing a procedure to address a "benign" kidney condition. 

"She is resting comfortably and remains in high spirits," the White House said in a statement. 
The Slovenia-born former model underwent an embolization procedure, according to her communications director Stephanie Grisham. 

Embolization is most frequently used to cut off the flow of blood to a tumor or growth. 
It is common to stay overnight after the procedure to treat the pain.
