BACKGROUND Evidence suggests that apoptosis plays a main role in the postoperative changes detected in the polymorphonuclear neutrophil (PMN) population. Furthermore, recent studies have demonstrated that mitochondrial alterations constitute critical events of the apoptotic cascade. In this study we investigated whether apoptosis among neutrophils taken from patients undergoing surgical trauma could be associated with perturbation of mitochondrial transmembrane potential (deltapsim) and/or… CONTINUE READING
