Hernioplasty-caused increase of CRP and AAT values. Concerning AAT, a significant increase of post-operative values respect to baseline ones was observed at 24 h (p < 0.05) and 48 h (p = 0.01 by ANOVA) in young patients, whereas in old subjects they were significant only at 48 h (p < 0.01 by ANOVA). Regarding CRP, in young patients the differences between baseline values and post-operative values were significant only at 24 h (p < 0.05 by ANOVA), whereas in old subjects were significant at 24 (p < 0.05) and 48 hours (p < 0.001 by ANOVA). Besides, the significance was obtained by comparing values of young and old patients at 6 h, 24 h and at 48 h after the operation (p = 0.028, p = 0.05 and p = 0.098 respectively for both by t Student 's test).
