Heart surgery is safer in the afternoon

November 12, 2017

Want to lower your risk of complications after heart surgery? It may be a simple as asking your surgeon to schedule the procedure for the afternoon rather than the morning.  A new study reported in the New York Times this month, showed that on almost every measure- heart attack during operation, major adverse cardiac events, acute heart failure and death- afternoon surgery produced significantly fewer complications.  Researchers believe that the body’s own stress protective mechanisms work better later in the day.
