In brief: EF

Ef or ejection fraction is the amount of blood ejected with each beat of the heart.
An ejection fraction of 55 - 60 per cent is normal. A low ef, below 30 or 35 per cent has a higher risk for any surgery including cardiac surgery. The risks are of more complications with surgery such as heart failure, forming of a blood clot, or a stroke.

In brief: Depends

If you are having heart surgery, ef may improve.
If non-cardiac surgery, risk is related to anesthetic depressing the heart muscle function and causing low blood pressure, which can cause heart attack and/or low blood flow to your other organs ...
