  1. TLR2 and TLR4 levels did not differ before and after surgery. In group 2 the TLR4 levels were strongly reduced by trend after surgery. Data are given as medians and IQR in brackets. The Wilcoxon test was used to calculate significant difference for the dependent variables. AM, alveolar macrophage; TLR, toll-like receptor.
