Abstract

Objective: To investigate the effect of carbon dioxide pneumoperitoneum on systemic oxidative stress by using serum oxidative stress markers (ischemia modified albumin (IMA), malondialdehyde (MDA), total oxidant status (TOS), total antioxidant status (TAS) and oxidative stress index (OSI)) and to compare their effectiveness at clinically accepted safe intra-abdominal pressure levels (<12 mmHg).
