Abstract

The classical and laboratory signs of inflammation such as elevated body temperature, blood sedimentation rate or serum leucocyte count, do not always provide accurate information on the status of an inflammatory disease. The same is true when these variables are used to monitor patients immediately postoperatively, particularly after major surgery.
