HEART SURGERY FOR SCHWARZENEGGER


Arnold Schwarzenegger has had heart surgery in Los Angeles. The former California governor, who is 70, had a scheduled procedure to replace a catheter valve on Thursday.

Sources told TMZ, that the surgery was experimental and he developed complications. Doctors quickly decided Arnold needed emergency open-heart surgery, which lasted several hours.

Schwarzenegger is reported to be in a stable condition and recovering at Cedars-Sinai hospital.

His spokesman, Daniel Ketchell, said the replaced valve was "never meant to be permanent" and that the latest procedure was a success, adding: "That's the most important part."
