Abstract

Background: Free radical-induced lipid peroxidation that is associated with a decrease in the antioxidant status of plasma occurs in many kinds of surgical procedures. In this study, we aimed to investigate markers of oxidative stress-malondialdehyde (as thiobarbituric acid reactive substances), protein carbonyls, and protein sulfhydryls-in patients undergoing Lichtenstein tension-free hernioplasty (LH) or laparoscopic preperitoneal hernia (LPPH) repair.
