Özet

The small intestine is highly sensitive to oxygen free radical-induced injury. Post-ischemic intestinal tissue damage appears to be due to the formation of oxygen radicals. Free radical initiated lipid peroxidation (LP) following intestinal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) may disrupt mucosal integrity, Indirectly, the radicals trigger the accumulation of neutrophils within the affected tissue, initiating inflammatory processes that lead to severe mucosal lesions.
