Abstract

Cellular damage is the pathophysiologic basis for the postoperative multiple organ failure syndrome. This damage may be caused by pre- and intraoperative shock. Postoperative organ failure is manifested when cellular repair does not occur. Three factors may contribute to this progression to multiple organ failure: inadequate resuscitation, malnutrition, and sepsis.
