Background: It is known that diabetic complications and lipid peroxidation are closely associated. During ischemia and reperfusion (IR), injury may occur in distant organs, as well as in tissues next to the region exposed to the ischemia, and the lungs can be one of the most affected of these organs. Therefore, this study investigated the effects of levosimendan on lung tissue and the oxidant-antioxidant system in diabetic rats.
