Men 40-80 years old 50% more likely to die after surgery than women


50% more likely to die after surgery surgery, show the men middle-aged compared to interlocutors women, as revealed by a new German scientific study.

The study, led by Dr. Dimislav Antonov of the Technical University of Munich, was presented at its online – coronavirus – annual conference. European Society of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Unit (ESAIC), analyzed data on more than 100,000 non-cardiac patients, with a mean age of 54 years, from a leading German university hospital who had undergone scheduled surgeries. Research shows that Postoperative mortality is higher in men 40 to 80 years of age than in women of the same age.

Some previous studies had found that sex probably affects the postoperative complications, but they had not reached definitive conclusions. New research in a variety interventions (cancer tumor removal, hip replacement, acute appendicitis, car accident victims, etc.) seems to indicate that men are more at risk after surgery.

There is no exact explanation because men 40-80 years old are more at risk. It is likely that they have more often cardiovascular problems and this makes postoperative complications more likely. Also the largest hesitation of men to visit doctors, can play a role.
