Noncardiac surgery mortality risk increased by insufficient vitamin D

Noncardiac surgery mortality risk increased by insufficient vitamin D

August 18 2014. The journal Anesthesia & Analgesia published an article online on August 13, 2014 that reports an association between reduced vitamin D levels and a greater risk of serious complications, including cardiovascular events, infections and death, following noncardiac surgery.

Earlier investigation involving cardiac surgery patients failed to find a protective effect for vitamin D against in-hospital complications—a finding which could be the result of the excessive level of injury and inflammation resulting from this type of surgery. For the current study, Dr Alparslan Turan and colleagues at the Cleveland Clinic analyzed data from 3,509 noncardiac surgery patients whose serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels were measured within three months prior to or one month following surgery. Insufficient levels of 10 to 30 nanograms per milliliter (ng/mL) were uncovered in over 60% of the subjects and deficient levels of lower than 10 ng/mL approached the level of 20% of those studied.
