London (ANI): Hollywood actress Elizabeth Taylor is set to undergo a pioneering surgery to repair a “leaky" valve. The 77-year-old legendary actress, who suffered heart failure five years ago, asked fans for their prayers on her Twitter page.

“Dear Friends, I would like to let you know before it gets in the papers that I am going into the hospital to have a procedure on my heart," the Daily Express quoted her as saying.

“It"s very new and involves repairing my leaky valve using a clip device, without open heart surgery, so that my heart will function better. Any prayers you happen to have lying around I would dearly appreciate. I"ll let you know when it"s all over. Love you, Elizabeth," she added.

The star has previously undergone two hip replacement procedures and operation to remove a benign brain tumour.
