Background: Animal experiments have suggested that a high intraperitoneal pressure (IPP) might adversely affect the surgical peritoneal environment. The present experimental study investigates the impact of IPP of a CO2 pneumoperitoneum on human peritoneum. Methods Patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery were subjected to either low (8 mmHg) or standard (12 mmHg) IPP. Normal peritoneum was collected from the parietal wall at the beginning of surgery and every 60 min thereafter. Expression levels of 168 genes that encode extracellular matrix proteins, adhesion molecules or inflammatory cytokine signaling molecules were measured in peritoneal tissues using real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based assay panels. Human peritoneal mesothelial cells (HPMCs) and human peritoneal fibroblasts (HPFBs) were incubated in a CO2 insufflation chamber for 1 h at 12 or 8 mmHg. Hyaluronan (HA) synthesis and mRNA expression levels of hyaluronic acid synthases (HAS) and hyaluronidases (Hyal) in HPMCs and HPFBs were measured at 0, 4, 8, 12, 24 and 48 h after CO2 gas exposure by ELISA and real-time PCR, respectively. Results Expression levels of connective tissue growth factor (CTGF), matrix metalloproteinase-9, E-selectin, chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 2 (CXCL-2), Hyal-1 and Hyal-2 were significantly higher and those of HAS-1, HAS-3, thrombospondin-2 (TSP-2) and interleukin-10 were significantly lower in the 12 mmHg group compared with the 8 mmHg group. HA synthesis was significantly lower in the 12 mmHg group compared with the 8 mmHg group in HPMCs and HPFBs throughout the time course. Conclusions A low IPP (8 mmHg) may be better than the standard IPP (12 mmHg) to minimize the adverse impact on the surgical peritoneal environment during a CO2 pneumoperitoneum. © 2012 The Author.

Background: Animal experiments have suggested that the laparoscopic peritoneal environment is hypoxic. This study aimed to investigate whether peritoneal tissue is hypoxic on a cellular level during a carbon dioxide (CO2) pneumoperitoneum at different intraperitoneal pressures (IPPs) and to determine the short-term effects of surgical injury on the hypoxia status of peritoneal tissue in the injured peritoneum and the distant noninjured peritoneum at cellular and molecular levels. Methods: Experiment 1: Mice were divided into five groups according to the following treatments: anesthesia alone, laparotomy, and CO2 pneumoperitoneum at IPPs of 2, 8, or 15 mmHg. Over the course of each experiment, the peritoneal tissue-oxygen tension (PitO2) was continuously monitored. Experiment 2: On the first day, the mice were divided into three groups according to the following treatments: CO2 pneumoperitoneum at an IPP of either 2 or 8 mmHg or laparotomy. The bilateral caudal epigastric arteries and uterine horns then were coagulated using a bipolar cautery device. On day 7, peritoneal tissue samples were collected for real-time reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and immunohistochemistry. In both experiments, pimonidazole hydrochloride was used to detect tissue hypoxia at a cellular level. Results: Experiment 1: Peritoneal hypoxia at both tissue and cellular levels was detected only in the groups treated with an IPP of 15 mmHg (PitO2: 5.2 ± 1.0 mmHg, mean ± SEM). Experiment 2: The percentage of pimonidazole immunostained mesothelial and stromal cells from the distant noninjured peritoneum was significantly higher in the group treated with an IPP of 8 mmHg than in the other groups. Hypoxia-inducible factor 1 alpha subunit mRNA expression in the distant noninjured peritoneum of the group treated with an IPP of 8 mmHg was significantly higher than in the control group (anesthesia alone). Conclusion: The CO2 pneumoperitoneum itself did not cause peritoneal hypoxia at either a tissue or a cellular level in a mouse model when a low IPP was used. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
