The use of gelatine tubes as a suture base enables the edges of the intestinal incisions to be fixed in relation to each other, at the same time facilitating suturing. The action of intestinal proteolytic enzymes causes the gelatine tubes to disintegrate after suturing. Barium sulphate (BaSO4) was added in order to determine the disintegration time of the gelatine tube and to follow… Expand
