|Title:||Predictive significance of myeloperoxidase for the occurrence of postoperative vascular complications|
|Abstract:||© 2016, Serbian Medical Society. All rights reserved. New findings on the activity of myeloperoxidase in the course of an inflammatory process associated with infections and vascular lesions indicate its role in the state of oxidative stress and endothelial dysfunction as well as its predictive value for cardiovascular insults. The products of actions by myeloperoxidase represent an integrative mechanism connecting the tissue lesions, infectious, inflammatory processes, oxidative stress, endothelial dysfunction and the development of vascular insult (the most common are the arterial and venous thrombosis and consecutive embolism). The most common complications of an operative surgical treatment are vascular. Seen from a conservative standpoint the most common are arterial and venous thrombosis, but more broadly suture dehiscence could be considered as a consequence of the impaired microcirculation. Operational procedures as well as the underlying pathology lead to the activation of inflammatory cascade with the activation of myeloid lineage cells whereby a release and activation of myeloperoxidase, which in addition to antimicrobial exerts multiple vascular operations. Increased concentrations of myeloperoxidase in the plasma up to three months before the clinical expression of vascular insult indicates its predictive value. Current research portrays the possibility of adjusting the successful result of the action of myeloperoxidase and prevention of vascular complications.|
