Abstract

The suitability of complex administration of antioxidants (vitamins C, E and A) for prevention of postoperative complications was assessed in a randomized study which included 197 cases of gastric cancer. The treatment was followed by a lowering of lipid peroxidation process. In a group of 95 patients who had received the drugs preoperatively, the postoperative complication rate dropped from 30.9 to 1.9%.
