CPB, IL-10 levels were lower in group TEA than in group C (P<0.05). Before CPB, glucose levels were higher in group S than in groups TEA, C or TEA+S (P<0.001; P<0.05). There was no significant difference in glucose levels between groups TEA, TEA+S and C. At 1 hour after CPB, glucose levels were significantly lower in groups TEA and TEA+S than in groups S and C (P<0.001; P<0.05). At 1 hour after CPB, glucose levels were significantly higher in group S than in group C (P<0.05). At ICU, glucose levels were significantly lower in group TEA than in groups S, C and TEA+S (P<0.001; P<0.05).
Conclusion. The study results show that preinduction TEA improves glucose homeostasis during the perioperative 24-h period in CABG surgery. In addition, we found that while preinduction TEA reduced blood IL-10 levels, preinduction glucocorticoid and TEA+S increased the circulating levels of IL-10.
