Background: Carbon dioxide is usually preferred as the insufflating agent for laparoscopic surgery because it is readily available, noncombustible, and chemically stable. It is still questionable, however, if CO2 pneumoperitoneum has any effect on free radicals and lipid peroxidation. The purpose of this study was to investigate the possible effects of CO2 pneumoperitoneum on free radicals and lipid peroxidation in the erythrocytes of rats.
