Does Low Vitamin D Play a Role In Increased Risks After Surgery?

November 24, 2014

In Anesthesia and Analgesia, the researchers analyzed the relationship between Vitamin D level and surgical outcomes in approximately 3,500 patients who had surgery, other than heart surgery between 2005 and 2011.  Only patients who had available Vitamin D levels around the time of surgery– from three months to one month afterward were included in the study.  In conclusion, patients with low Vitamin D levels are at increased risk of death and serious complications after noncardiac surgery.

Here is the link to the study:
