Background: It has been suggested that off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery reduces myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury, postoperative systemic inflammatory response, and oxidative stress. The aim of this study was to measure serum malondialdehyde (MDA), high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), M30, and M65 levels and to investigate the relationship between M30 levels and oxidative stress and inflammation in patients undergoing on-and off-pump CABG surgery.
