Effect of laparoscopic colon resection on postoperative glucose utilization and protein sparing: an integrated analysis of glucose and protein metabolism during the fasted and fed States using stable isotopes.


HYPOTHESIS Using a stable isotope method to quantify postoperative changes in glucose and protein metabolism, patients undergoing laparoscopic-assisted colon resection and receiving 4 mg . kg(-1) . min(-1) of dextrose intravenously will (1) have more pronounced suppression of endogenous glucose production, leading to (2) a greater reduction in whole-body… (More)
