Abstract

OBJECTIVES: Pulmonary edema has been shown to occur following ischemia-reperfusion injury in a variety of organs and effects of several pharmacological agents on ischemia-reperfusion-induced damage has been investigated previously. However, there are only a few studies in the literature about pulmonary injury following adnexial ischemia-reperfusion. In this study we aimed at investigating pulmonary changes following adnexial ischemia-reperfusion and the effects of melatonin on noncardiogenic pulmonary edema secondary to adnexial ischemia-reperfusion.
