Serum lipoperoxide levels in surgical stress of abdominal hysterectomy.

In continuation of our studies on stress situations in female reproductive life span, serum lipid peroxide levels in terms of malondialdehyde (nmol/ml) have been determined in females [(n = 40) (aged between 35-40 years)] to undergo total abdominal hysterectomy (due to dysfunctional uterine bleeding). There occurred a statistically significant though within physiological limits, progressive rise in serum lipid peroxide levels right from preoperative stage 3.51, per operatively 3.56 to a maximum of 4.10 postoperative stage I with a tendency of fall at postoperative stage II 3.94 in comparison with self control on admission 2.97. It is suggestive of the balancing and protective role of scavenging enzyme system like superoxide dismutase also backed by improvement in health status of abdominal hysterectomy patients in terms of ambulation, free intake of food and behavioural positive attitude within 24 hours following operation presumably due to relief from stress of DUB. It is felt from the results of the present investigation that patients undergoing abdominal hysterectomy were free from free radical toxicity.[1]
