Tonsillectomy before age 20th years old can be at risk of premature heart disease

Some new study conducted by a group of researchers in the United States and Scandinavia showed that tonsillectomy before the age of 20 years can make a person more at risk of premature cardiovascular disorders.

In this study, researchers monitored every Swedish citizen who has made removal of the tonsils. Total tonsillectomy was included for this study estimated about 80,000 procedures.

The results of this study known to the person tonsillectomy before the age of 20 years had a risk of 44 percent more likely to have heart attacks than those who did not perform the operation. Whereas in the appendix removed before age 20 the risk is increased by 33 percent.

This indicates that both the organ has a function for the body. When the organ is removed it can reduce the production of immunoglobulin antibodies in the body that function to find and destroy harmful bacteria and viruses.

The researchers incorporated in this study revealed that harmful bacteria and viruses are believed to play a role in disturbing the heart health.

Meanwhile, those who performed the surgery after the age of 20 years there have been no increased cardiac risk. This suggests that these organs play a major role in the immune system during childhood and adolescence.

Although it is expected not to panic in advance, because the number of heart attacks early in the study is still low. Than 54,000 surgical tonsil removals of the appendix and 27,000 tonsillectomy only 633 related heart attack.

For that you should consult in advance if you have inflammation of the tonsils or appendix, if can be harmful to the body or not. And should keep and maintain the heart in order to stay healthy at any age.

Tonsils are a part of the lymph tissue located on both sides of the back of the throat. This will have an enlarged tonsils or inflammation in case of infection by either bacteria or viruses. But usually the tonsils will be back to normal after the infection is over.

Tonsillitis symptoms can be caused by viral infection (coxsackie virus, adenovirus or Epstein-Barr virus), or it could be by the bacteria that most of Group a Streptococcus.

But by looking at the impact of the loss of the tonsils in the risk of heart indicates that these two organs also have an important function for the body.
