Introduction This study aims to evaluate the effect of acute, iatrogenic right arm ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) due to right axillary cannulation on regional oxidative stress using tissue perfusion markers such as central venous oxygen saturation, lactate, the difference between central venous and arterial CO2 pressure, near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) measurements, and biomarkers like sialic acid, malondialdehyde, advanced oxidative protein products in aortic surgery with moderate hypothermia.
