Table 2 Demographic data, duration of anesthesia and surgery for 24 patients and 6 volunteers without surgery.

From: Amino acid infusion during anesthesia attenuates the surgery induced decline in IGF-1 and diminishes the "diabetes of injury"

Study Groups n Age (year) Weight (kg) Height (cm) Duration of anesthesia (min) Duration of surgery (min)
Group A 6 50 ± 3 63 ± 3 170 ± 2 - -
Group B 8 50 ± 2 64 ± 2 165 ± 1 125 ± 8 92 ± 6
Group C 8 48 ± 1 68 ± 3 163 ± 2 121 ± 9 94 ± 9
Group D 8 48 ± 2 61 ± 1 164 ± 2 120 ± 5 87 ± 4
  1. Demographic data, duration of anesthesia and surgery for 24 patients scheduled for hysterectomy and 6 volunteers without surgery. Group A = Amino acid infusion but no anesthesia or surgery; Group B = Ringer's solution infusion throughout anesthesia; Group C = Amino acid infusion throughout anesthesia; Group D = Amino acid infusion started 1 h before anesthesia and during 1.5 h of surgery. Values are mean ± SEM.
