Actor and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger underwent a heart surgery in a Los Angeles hospital.
Last Thursday, 70-year-old Schwarzenegger was given a planned operation of a closed type to replace the heart valve (balloon angioplasty).
For the first time, the aortic valve was delivered to
Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1997.
The Internet portal about celebrities TMZ originally reported that Arnold had an open heart surgery because it was “urgent and caused complications,” but this information was not confirmed.
It was reported that during the procedure the team of cardio surgeons was ready in case of possible complications.
Actor’s representative Daniel Ketchell said that this valve was initially installed not for centuries and that the procedure for its replacement was successful.
Now the state of Schwarzenegger is stable and he is still in the hospital complex Cedars-Sinai.
Sebastian Kurtz, Chancellor of Austria – the country where Schwarzenegger came from – wished the actor a speedy recovery. “I’m waiting for our new meeting!” – he wrote in “Twitter.”
Schwarzenegger began his career with bodybuilding, and world fame came to him after he starred in the cult action movies “Commandos” and “Terminator.”
He served as governor of California two terms from 2003 to 2011. and returned to Hollywood, starring in 2011 in the action movie “The Expendables” with Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone.
In May 2017, Schwarzenegger received the highest award of France – the Order of the Legion of Honor – for his contribution to the cause of environmental protection.
