Arnold Schwarzenegger Heart Surgery – ‘I’m Back,’ Arnold Schwarzenegger Says After Waking Up From Open Heart Surgery
A little thing like replacing a pulmonic valve via heart surgery isn’t enough to stop the Terminator. Arnold Schwarzenegger is in stable condition after undergoing a planned procedure on Friday to replace a valve that was replaced in 1997 for a congenital heart defect, the Washington Post reports.
And the first thing he said when he woke up: “I’m back.”
“He is in good spirits,” Schwarzenegger’s spokesman Daniel Ketchell said in a statement. “That 1997 replacement valve was never meant to be permanent, and has outlived its life expectancy, so he chose to replace it yesterday through a less-invasive catheter valve replacement.”
An open-heart surgery team was also on hand during the procedure.
“They frequently are in these circumstances, in case the catheter procedure was unable to be performed,” Ketchell said. “Governor Schwarzenegger’s pulmonic valve was successfully replaced.”
Hasta la vista, faulty pulmonic valve.
