Mark Cuban gives health update after ‘View’ absence


Mark Cuban tells us he is doing “great” after undergoing a procedure for atrial fibrillation earlier this week that shocked his heart back into rhythm.

“It’s a common procedure for people with afib and fortunately so far so good! I’m doing great,” the 60-year-old “Shark Tank” entrepreneur told Page Six via email on Thursday.

Earlier in the day, Cuban was supposed to appear with the other sharks on “The View,” but he was unable to make the taping.

“I was just limited in what I could do because of the timing of the procedure,” he explained. “If we would have filmed [Friday] it wouldn’t have been an issue.”

It’s not the first time he’s been open about having afib, defined by the Mayo Clinic as “an irregular and often rapid heart rate that can increase your risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications.” In 2017, the billionaire tweeted about the condition.

“I also recommend that anyone experiencing an irregular heartbeat visit their doctor and read up on arterial fibrillation,” Cuban told us. “If you take the right steps it’s a condition that can be dealt with.”

Per the Mayo Clinic, “Episodes of atrial fibrillation can come and go, or you may develop atrial fibrillation that doesn’t go away and may require treatment. Although atrial fibrillation itself usually isn’t life-threatening, it is a serious medical condition that sometimes requires emergency treatment.”
