Background: Surgical injury induces a systemic inflammatory metabolic-endocrine response that is proportional to the severity of the surgical stress. Compared with the conventional open method, laparoscopic surgery is mini-invasive and has decreased postoperative pain and length of hospitalization. The aim of this study was to investigate the systemic inflammatory response, after laparoscopic and open stoma-adjustable silicone band application, which is thought to be mediated by cytokines.
