Abstract

Neurohumoral, immunologic and metabolic alteration characterize surgical procedures in relation with the intensity of injury, the total operating time and the anesthetic technique. We, therefore, compared the effects of desflurane versus sevoflurane anesthesia on intra and postoperative release of the stress hormones and inflammatory cytokines.
