The veteran star kept in touch with her fans on micro-blogging site Twitter.

?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,' Liz Tweeted in 2009.

?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.'

Dame Elizabeth also underwent two hip replacements and had a benign tumour removed from her brain.

?Any prayers you happen to have lying around I would dearly appreciate,' she told her followers.

?I'll let you know when it's all over. Love you, Elizabeth.'
