The legend revealed in October he had his aortic valve replaced in Cleveland, Ohio to go with his new pulmonary valve that he had inserted in April 2018.

‘Thanks to the team at the Cleveland Clinic, I have a new aortic valve to go along with my new pulmonary valve from my last surgery,’ explained the father of five. 

The native of Austria also shared that he is already up and walking about.

The star then said, ‘I feel fantastic and have already been walking the streets of Cleveland enjoying your amazing statues. Thank you to every doc and nurse on my team!’

When the aortic valve is not working properly, ‘it can interfere with blood flow and force the heart to work harder to send blood to the rest of the body,’ according to webmd. 

The former California governor could be seen in the hospital as well as going for a walk in a track suit.

According to webmd, ‘Aortic valve repair and aortic valve replacement are procedures that treat diseases affecting the aortic valve, one of four valves that control blood flow through the heart.’

The aortic valve helps keep blood flowing in the correct direction through the heart, the site added.

It separates the heart’s main pumping chamber (left ventricle) and the main artery that supplies oxygen-rich blood to your body (aorta), webmd further explained.

WHAT IS AORTIC VALVE REPAIR?

According to webmd, ‘aortic valve repair and aortic valve replacement are procedures that treat diseases affecting the aortic valve, one of four valves that control blood flow through the heart.’

It separates the heart’s main pumping chamber (left ventricle) and the main artery that supplies oxygen-rich blood to your body (aorta), webmd further explained.

‘With each contraction of the ventricle, the aortic valve opens and allows blood to flow from the left ventricle into the aorta. When the ventricle relaxes, the aortic valve closes to prevent blood from flowing backward into the ventricle,’ it was shared. 

Aortic valve repair or aortic valve replacement can restore normal blood flow and aid the heart muscle.

It can also add years to a life.  

In 2018 he went to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles 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.

The actor was last seen 10 days ago in Los Angeles looking healthy.

The fitness fanatic ran some errands with his massive Humvee army jeep during an afternoon run in Santa Monica.

Schwarzenegger became the first civilian to purchase a Humvee, and he even paved the way for the civilian version that debuted in 1992. 

Schwarzenegger was wearing a red t-shirt and camo shorts as he stepped out for his errand outing.

He was also wearing black sunglasses and a luxurious gold watch as he maneuvered his massive vehicle down the road. 

Arnold also seen with a cigar in his mouth as he rode solo through the streets of Santa Monica. 

Schwarzenegger has been staying active amid the pandemic, sharing photos and videos of him keeping up his rigorous workout routine.
