Panic! Arnold Schwarzenegger Goes Into Surgery

One of the world’s most renown movie superstars, Arnold Schwarzenegger has sparked fears about him as he undergoes emergency open heart surgery.

According to Daily Mail UK, Arnold Schwarzenegger has undergone an emergency open-heart surgery after a failed valve replacement procedure, it was reported on Friday.

TMZ, which broke the news, citing sources close to the 70-year-old Terminator star, said the former governor of California went to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles on Thursday to have a scheduled catheter valve replacement.

The procedure is said to be risky, and the seven-time Mr. Olympia winner developed complications, leading to an emergency open-heart surgery that reportedly lasted several hours.

As of late Friday morning, his condition following the operation was described as stable.

The veteran action star went in for surgery in 1997 to replace an aortic valve. According to the American Heart Association, the valve closes off the lower left chamber of the heart that holds the oxygen-rich blood before it is pumped out to the body, and it opens to allow blood to leave the heart.

Aortic valve replacement is a procedure in which a patient’s leaky, or partially block aortic valve is replaced with an artificial heart valve.

Schwarzenegger appeared on CNN last weekend to talk about the future of the Republican Party in the age of Donald Trump, saying that the GOP is ‘dying at the box office.’

Not everyone she comes into contact with in Senegal feels positive about her work, she says.”They’re not used to street art,” she acknowledges. “They’re more used to images related to religion. They don’t really care for art.”
In a statement Mo Abudu, Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our vision has always been to change the narrative about Africa and to tell our stories from our perspective.”

Nigerian filmmaker Femi Odugbemi applauded the deal. He told CNN, “It’s the first time I think a global company, or a company with a global footprint, is coming to the table, not just to give crumbs but to actually to try to collaborate in a way that expands opportunity for creating (stories) of African descent.”
