The official representative of Arnold Schwarzenegger Daniel Ketchell comments, “CNN” reported about the emergency surgery that had to endure American actor and former Governor of California.
The actor underwent a complicated operation to transplant the valve of the pulmonary artery, which is responsible for the regulation of the flow of venous blood from the right ventricle to the lungs. Spokesman Schwarzenegger reports that the operation was successful and the actor feels well. His condition is stable, and when he came out of anesthesia, then said, “I’m back”, making a reference to the famous phrase from the movie “the Terminator”, for which he became famous.
As reported by TMZ, the 70-year-old actor the day before he was hospitalized in Cedar Sinai hospital in Los Angeles for the valve replacement catheter. During the procedure, complications arose, and to avoid death, the doctors decided to do emergency open-heart surgery. It lasted a few hours.
Note that this is not the first open-heart surgery, which survived a famous actor. In 50 years, he has done such a procedure. In 1997, the doctors replaced the actor a defective aortic valve. Then need for emergency surgical intervention was not, but the actor still decided on surgery. As reported by Arnold, his heart problems are inherent and are not related to the use of steroids.
True friends of the actor does not throw the friend in a difficult moment. So 71-year-old Sylvester Stallone visited Schwarzenegger in the clinic Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and told reporters about his condition. “He’s doing better, will be healthier than ever. He is a very brave man,” says Stallone. He also expresses doubts about whether Arnie will cope with the harmful habit of Smoking cigars. “There are things that you just can’t quit.”
