    Arnold Schwarzenegger undergoes emergency open-heart surgery



    Arnold Schwarzenegger reportedly underwent emergency open-heart surgery on Thursday due to complications from a related experimental procedure. According to TMZ, the 70-year-old star went to the hospital for an experimental procedure to replace a catheter valve.

    Allegedly, he developed complications during the somewhat experimental replacement and doctors quickly decided to perform open-heart surgery. Fortunately, the surgeons were prepared for this eventuality and the outlet reports that he’s in stable condition.
    The veteran action star went in for surgery in 1997 to replace an aortic valve. According to the American Heart Association, the valve closes off the lower left chamber of the heart that holds the oxygen-rich blood before it is pumped out to the body, and it opens to allow blood to leave the heart.
    Aortic valve replacement is a procedure in which a patient’s leaky, or partially block aortic valve is replaced with an artificial heart valve.
