PHOENIX (AP) — Bret Michaels has undergone a procedure in Phoenix to close a hole in his heart.
Doctors discovered the hole in the rocker’s heart in April while treating him for a brain hemorrhage.
A surgical team at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center performed the procedure Monday.
The hospital said the rocker had a cardiac catheterization during which doctors inserted  a closure device into the heart. It will remain there.
Doctors said without the procedure, Michaels risked developing blood clots and an additional stroke.
