Mick Jagger's heart surgery to pause Rolling Stones tour

Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger will reportedly undergo heart surgery this week following the postponement of the band's North American tour for medical reasons.

"Mick has been advised by doctors that he can not go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment", read a statement from the band."We apologize for any inconvenience this causes those who have tickets to shows but wish to reassure fans to hold onto these existing tickets, as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates, which will be announced shortly". "I really hate letting you down like this", Mick Jagger said in a statement. "I'm devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on the road as soon as I can". It will allow blood to leak backwards.

In one scenario, the valve can calcify and narrow as we age, putting pressure on the heart, "like putting your finger on the end of a garden hose", he explained. This is called valve incompetence, or regurgitation, or a leaky valve. The four valves include the mitral valve, tricuspid valve, pulmonary valve and aortic valve.

Their website states: "If your valve does not open fully. The most common types of replacement valves are mechanical (artificial) valves or tissue (animal) valves". "And with time, it gets rustier", added Bonow, who is also a past president of the American Heart Association.

Oz said the other valve which also frequently requires surgery is the mitral value, which is further into the heart.

When asked if the show will go on, given the tight window of opportunity for an outdoor show in central Ontario, officials said they remain hopeful.

This replacement has been approved for use in high-risk patients for whom doctors would rather avoid more invasive surgery.

Shah said it's important for people to seek treatment, regardless of how old, active or inactive they are.
