Removal of appendix and tonsils favors heart attacks

Removal of appendix and tonsils favors heart attacks

European Heart Journal showed that surgical removal of the appendix and tonsils from people under 20 years of age increases the likelihood of having a heart attack after surgery. According to the research, tonsillectomy increases risk by 44% and appendectomy by 33%. The search was based on medical files of people born between 1955 and 1970, identifying which of them had or not the tonsils and appendix removed. Each of the 54,449 patients who had appendectomy removed and 27,284 patients who had the tonsils removed were then followed up for about 20 years. Of these, 89% and 47%, respectively, had fatal or nonfatal heart attacks after surgery. In addition, people who underwent removal surgery after age 20 had lower risk of having a heart attack than who did before that age. According to the researchers, the most likely reason is that after the adolescent the appendix and tonsils slow down their functions in the body, becoming less essential. The two organs are part of the human immune system, but they have reduced importance when compared to the others. For this reason, when a patient suffers from appendicitis or tonsillitis - inflammation in the appendix and amygdala respectively - removal has become a usual procedure.
