Hailey Bieber has revealed that she underwent a major heart surgery after suffering a ‘mini stroke,’ last month.

She said she underwent a patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure procedure to mend a hole in her heart, she made it known that discovered she had a blood clot which travelled to her brain and caused a transient ischemic attack (TIA) after being rushed to a Palm Springs area hospital last month.

In a new YouTube video “telling my story,” Hailey said;

“It went very smoothly … I’m recovering really well, really fast.

“When I went to UCLA we did more in-depth testing … to find a PFO, a flap between the right and left chambers of the heart.

“Typically at birth it’s supposed to close on its own.

“They found that I had a grade five which is the highest grade you can have. Mine was fairly large. What typically happens is the heart will filter the blood clot to the lungs and the lungs will absorb it because they’re so big and they can handle it.

“The blood clot escaped through the hole in my heart and travelled to my brain and that is why I suffered a [mini stroke].”

She added that she was grateful they found it.

“I’m really relieved I will be able to just move on from this really scary situation and live my life”
