|Title:||Interleukin 6 production during abdominal aortic aneurysm repair arises from the gastrointestinal tract and not the legs.|
|Citation:||BR J SURG, 2004, 91 (9), pp. 1153-1156|
|Abstract:||Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair is associated with a systemic inflammatory response. This inflammatory response probably arises as a result of an ischaemia-reperfusion injury to the legs and gastrointestinal tract. In this study the relative contributions of these areas to the inflammatory response were assessed during elective AAA repair.|
