Abstract

Surgical interventions and invasive procedures can trigger an inflammatory reaction in patients. This inflammatory reaction is an inherent response by the body and can be triggered by different stimuli, including the surgical tissue trauma itself and also by the administration of drugs commonly used for the induction and maintenance of general anesthesia.
