Arnold Schwarzenegger stable after emergency heart surgery

Arnold Schwarzenegger has undergone emergency open heart surgery during a procedure to replace a catheter valve, USA media report.

Spokesman Daniel Ketchell wrote on Twitter Friday morning that Schwarzenegger had been scheduled to replace a pulmonary valve through a less invasive procedure.

However, the 70-year-old is now in stable condition and recuperating. Thankfully, doctors were prepared for the possibility that the valve replacement might fail and were ready to perform the surgery at a moment's notice. The star experienced complications after the "somewhat experimental" procedure.

However, that may not be the cause here, since his 1997 heart surgery corrected a biscuspid aortic valve (meaning he was born with two valves instead of the standard three). That 1997 operation, too, produced complications, requiring another emergency procedure. However, as mentioned, Schwarzenegger is now stable in recovery. An athletic youth, Schwarzenegger chose to focus on bodybuilding over soccer and soon found himself winning awards at professional competitions, becoming the youngest Mr. Universe ever at the age of 20. "I could have died".

Schwarzenegger tweeted a joke proposal that he and Trump exchange jobs "so that people can finally sleep comfortably again". In March 2017, Schwarzenegger announced that he would not return to the show.
