The aim of this study is to evaluate the predictive value of albumine, C-reactive protein (CRP), procalcitonin, and lactates in terms of surgical stress and postoperative complications. These biomarkers will be measured from the day before surgery until postoperative day four in patients undergoing major surgery. Major surgery was defined as esophagus, gastric, liver, pancreas, endocrine, retroperitoneal, or colorectal procedures including an organ resection for benign or malignant disease and lasting more than 2 hours.
