  Purpose

The perioperative administration of n-3 fatty acids has been shown to lead to favorable effects on outcome in patients with severe surgical interventions by lowering the magnitude of inflammatory response and by modulating the immune response. To the investigators' knowledge, no study with preoperative administration of intravenous (IV) omega 3 fatty acids as a part of total parenteral nutrition (TPN) or monotherapy with it to demonstrate its effects on inflammatory and immune response has been conducted. So, this study has been planned to judge the inflammatory response of preoperative monotherapy with IV omega 3 fatty acids in elderly patients undergoing valvular surgery considering the hyperinflammation associated with this type of surgery in elderly patients.
