ABSTRACT
The article evaluates the risk of bacteraemia in an experimental model of peritonitis in pigs after laparoscopic surgery with low or high pressure and conventional surgery as well by measuring the levels of interleukin 6. 45 male pigs weighing 20-25 kg were anaesthetised and a mixture of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella, Enterococcus Proteus mirabilis and Bacteroides fragilis were introduced into the abdominal cavity. The results show that there were no differences between laparoscopic low pressure and laparotomy groups. There was a higher tendency to bacteraemia of Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis and Klebsiella pneumoniae in the high pressure laparoscopy group. There was higher bacteraemia of Enterococcus in the high pressure laparoscopic group.
