INTRODUCTION Previous studies have shown that interleukin-6 (IL-6) levels correlated with mortality in critically ill patients. GOAL To determine the effect of ketamine on IL-6 levels in liver resections patients with a temporary porto-arterial occlusion (Pringle manoeuvre). MATERIALS AND METHODS Controlled, prospective, randomized, double-blinded study. One group (n = 21) received ketamine whereas the other group (n = 17) received placebo. IL-6 levels were obtained at baseline, 4, 12, 24 h… CONTINUE READING
