Abstract

The aim of the present study was to assess the antioxidant capacity in the serum and pericardial fluid of patients undergoing heart surgery for coronary heart disease (CHD) or valvular heart disease (VHD) and to find out whether there are gender-related differences in the antioxidant defense. This study involved 85 patients (35 VHD and 50 CHD) undergoing elective heart surgery. Blood samples from the peripheral vein and from the pericardial fluid were taken intraoperatively. Variables determined in the serum and pericardial fluid were: total protein, albumin, uric acid and antioxidant capacity. In the total patient population the antioxidant capacity in the pericardial fluid was lower than in the serum but still relatively high as determined by two independent techniques. No major differences were seen in serum or pericardial fluid antioxidant capacity between the two patient groups. In the overall patient population uric acid (p
