The goal of the study was to analyze if perioperative hyperoxia therapy decreases the incidence of infectious complications after elective colon surgery without increasing long-term mortality. Methods: We performed a retros…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
