Hernioplasty-caused neutrophilia. Concerning significance between baseline values and post-operative values, in young patients the differences were not significant (ANOVA), whereas in old subjects were significant at all the times (p < 0.001, p < 0.001 and p < 0.01 respectively) (ANOVA). The neutrophilia was significantly higher in old patients, when compared to the young ones, at 6 h and 24 h after the operation (p = 0.02 and p = 0.003 respectively) (t Student's test).
