|Title:||Influence of cytokines on the postoperative period|
|Journal:||Clinical and Experimental Obstetrics and Gynecology|
|Abstract:||© 2020 Jovanovic et al. Purpose of Investigation: The relationships between postoperative recovery and changes of circulating levels of pro- and anti-in- flammatory cytokines. Materials and Methods: The study included prospectively a cohort of 51 females who underwent abdominal hys- terectomy for benign diseases. Recovery was assessed with Quality of Recovery 40 (QoR-40) questionnaire and concentrations of four cytokines during the 72-hours period were measured using human sensitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kits. Results: Total QoR-40 score significantly declined on the first and the second postoperative days and then returned to baseline (p < 0.001). Interleukin-17 serum levels had no significant trend (p = 0.072). Statistically significant patterns of concentration changes of interferon gamma (p = 0.010), interleukin-10 (p < 0.001), and transforming growth factor (p = 0.016) were found. There were no significant cor- relations between QoR-40 scores and concentrations of any cytokine, at prespecified study power for moderate relationships at least. Conclusion: Recovery after abdominal hysterectomy was rapid and complete and it was unrelated to serum concentration profiles of examined cytokines.|
