Arnold Schwarzenegger undergoes emergency heart surgery: Report


Arnold Schwarzenegger underwent emergency open-heart surgery on Thursday, TMZ reports.

The actor, 70, reportedly went to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for a catheter valve replacement. After developing complications during the "somewhat experimental" surgery, Schwarzenegger's doctors -- who were "prepared in case the catheter valve replacement failed" -- opted for the star to undergo open-heart surgery.

After the hours-long operation, Schwarzenegger is reportedly in stable condition.

As the outlet notes, the former governor of California underwent heart surgery back in 1997 when he got an aortic valve replaced, despite doctors not feeling as though it was an urgent necessity.

The star says that his heart condition is congenital and not related to any steroid use.

More to come.
