Gabriele F Silveira, Isadora AC Fraga, Larissa RM Castro, José Lucas UM Gomes, Marina A Delgado

Article Type: Narrative Review | First Published: March 30, 2022

Surgical interventions and the anesthesia chosen for the procedure induce immunosuppression in the perioperative period, triggering the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines, favoring tumor growth and recurrence. However, it must be clarified what actually influences immunomodulation: the surgical technique, the anesthetic used, the type of tumor or a combination of all of them. Both the surgery and anaesthetic technique can exert immunomodulatory effects, and, therefore, they may contribute to ...
