Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger had a successful heart valve replacement procedure Thursday and may leave the hospital within days.
According to Billboard, Jagger underwent a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) at a New York hospital. The procedure involved doctors accessing Jagger's aortic valve via a catheter instead of opening his chest. Doctors went through Jagger's femoral artery to reach the aortic valve, which pumps oxygenated blood from the heart out to the body.
Billboard reported Jagger will be forced to rest for at least four or five days to make sure no complications occur, including excess bleeding.
News of Jagger's pending heart procedure was reported Monday, days after the Rolling Stones postponed a tour of the United States and Canada because of Jagger's medical treatment.
"I'm devastated for having to postpone the tour, but I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can," Jagger wrote on Twitter over the weekend. "I'm so sorry to all our fans in America and Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this."
