According to a news report, film legend Arnold Schwarzenegger has opened emergency cardiac surgery and is in stable condition.
According to TMZ reports, 70-year-old Schwarzenegger went to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, replaced the catheter valve and experienced complications, and quoted sources close to the “terminator” star.
According to reports, these complications prompted doctors to perform open-heart surgery for several hours.
A representative of Schwarzenegger did not immediately respond to the request for comment.
Schwarzenegger also underwent heart surgery in 1997 when doctors changed the aortic valve.
The actor turned politician chose to undergo surgery because he was still young, although the doctor was sure that he did not need surgery immediately.
Schwarzenegger initially made his first heart surgery a secret to his wife, Maria Shri, by telling her that he was on holiday in Mexico.
He recalled that his doctor was skeptical of this decision in 2012 when he was interviewed for “60 minutes.”
“He said, ‘Your wife is pregnant, what do you mean, you will not tell her?'” Schwarzenegger said in the CBS News magazine. “I told him, ‘This is a plan.
I have to do heart surgery. You have to do it quietly. No one knows. I do it at six o’clock in the morning. Four days later I left here. I go to Mexico. I will tell Maria I’m here.” It’s a bit busy. I’m on holiday. When I come back, I’ll be tanned. No one will know.
Shortly after that operation, the representative of Schwarzenegger told the Los Angeles Times that the surgery was not related to the actor’s past use of steroids, and called it “the congenital disease in his family”.
