OBJECTIVE It is well known that conventional surgery leads to detrimental immune and catabolic responses, thus there is growing interest in the effect of minimally invasive techniques on postoperative endocrine and immune function. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the growth hormone (GH)/insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1)/IGF binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) axis and acute phase (interleukin-6, IL-6, and C-reactive protein, CRP) responses in patients who underwent laparoscopic…

The Difference of the Impact of Elective Cholecystectomy Surgery in the Immune Response

There was an elevation of the inflammatory markers in patients submitted to surgical trauma when comparing the exams collected in the preoperative period and after the surgical aggression, confirming the hypothesis that there is an increase in CRP and leukocyte count as a response tourgical trauma.

Improvement and effect of stress responses and ovarian reserve function in patients with ovarian cysts after laparoscopic surgery

After laparoscopic ovarian cyst surgery, changes in most ovarian reserve function indices in the experimental group were significantly less than that in the control group and the patient’s stress response level is lower after this surgery.

Infantile Hypertrophic Pyloric Stenosis Following Repair of H-type Tracheoesophageal Fistula Repair and Post-operative Erythromycin Therapy

We present a rare case of a newborn with H-type tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) who developed pyloric stenosis postoperatively, 10 days after he was started on erythromycin to promote gastric

Endocrine and immune response to injury after open and laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

A similar hormonal response to surgical insult was produced in patients subjected to OC and LC, and prolactin is thought to exert control over the production of IL-6, the most indicative of injury.

Interleukin-6 response to laparoscopic and open colectomy

The results indicate that laparoscopic colon resections do not appear to alter cortisol or interleukin-1 responses when compared with open colon resection, and there is, however, a significant blunting of the interleucin-6 response associated with the use of Laparoscopic techniques for colectomy compared with standard laparotomy.

A laparoscopic approach appears to cause less surgical trauma and immunosuppression than open surgery in patients with acute cholecystitis.

A comparison of serum interleukin-6 concentrations in patients treated by cholecystectomy via laparotomy or laparoscopy.

The increase in the serum IL-6 level during LC was found to be significantly smaller than that during OC and resulted in a smaller extent of postoperative elevations for C-reactive protein.

Cytokine activation in patients undergoing open or laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Cytokine response after cholecystectomy demonstrates the lesser degree of surgical injury in the laparoscopic group, however, TNF-alpha demonstrates on day 4 a similar increase in both groups, a new result of studies working in this field.

The laparoscopic approach reduces the endocrine response to elective cholecystectomy.

The laparoscopic approach results in a significantly reduced neuroendocrine response to surgical trauma following cholecystectomy, which may be the best surgical approach in critically ill patients requiring choleCystectomy or other intraabdominal procedures.

A prospective randomized comparison of the metabolic and stress hormonal responses of laparoscopic and open cholecystectomy.

Elective laparoscopy and open cholecystectomy for uncomplicated cholelithiasis result in similar degrees of perioperative hormonal stimulation, and the different hormonal responses in the immediate and later postoperative periods after laparoscopic and open CholeCystectomy suggest differential stressful stimuli between the two procedures.

Growth hormone/insulin-like growth factors axis in children undergoing cardiac surgery

A GH-resistant state is observed in postoperative children following cardiac surgery and stress response is characterized by an elevation of growth hormone secretion that is not followed by the corresponding increment in IGF-I and IGFBP-3 concentrations.

Acute Phase is the Only Significantly Reduced Component of the Injury Response after Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

AbstractThe objective demonstration of improved postoperative recovery suggests that the surgical injury response induced by the laparoscopic approach is less intense than that after open surgery.
