Surgery may increase the risk of death after corona: global research


Patients with coronas may have an increased risk of death after surgery. A global study has revealed this after researching a group of 1,128 patients from 235 hospitals in Asia, Africa, and North America.

This research has been done by scientists of the National Institute for Health Research of the University of Birmingham, which has been published in the Lancet paper. According to research, the death rate is higher among infected patients who are undergoing surgery. According to research, the death rate was 23.8 percent in 30 days.

According to research, the death rate is higher among men than women. According to research, the death rate in men is 28.4 percent and in women, it is 18.2 percent. Not only this, but the death rate is also 33.7 percent in those above 70 years of age and 13.9 percent in those below 70 years.

In addition, people who already have serious illnesses, such as cancer treatment or surgery, are more likely to have mortality in these patients. In such patients, the death rate is higher because their immunity is already slightly weakened.

Research co-author Anil Bhagnu says that prior to the research, it was estimated that the mortality rate for small and selective surgeries will be less than one percent, but now it is learned that these rates are 16.3 percent in small surgeries and 18.9 percent in alternative surgeries. It might be possible.

Anil Bhagnu believes that this death rate is higher than the patients who were at high risk before the epidemic. Research also says that 2.84 crore elective surgeries have been canceled after blockade caused by the corona virus all over the world.
