  Purpose

This study aims to evaluate the attenuation of ischemic-reperfusion injury in the liver after sevoflurane preconditioning. In the presence of sevoflurane, an attenuation of liver injury is hypothesized (diminished increase of liver enzymes, reduced production of inflammatory mediators).


Condition Intervention
Reperfusion Injury
Drug: Sevoflurane

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Pharmacodynamics Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Role of Volatile Anesthetics for Hepatic Protection in Ischemia-reperfusion
