Postoperative increase in inflammation biologic markers is associated with a nonspecific inflammatory response to a surgical injury. We investigated the kinetics of changes in serum concentrations of procalcitonin (PCT), C-reactive protein (CRP) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) after abdominal surgeries and we focused on the behaviour of those markers in the case of development of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). In the single centre we conducted a prospective observational study and… CONTINUE READING
