BACKGROUND Most adhesion experiments involve observations at a single time point. We developed a method to evaluate abdominal adhesions to surgical mesh by sequential laparoscopy. STUDY DESIGN An abdominal wall defect was created in rats and repaired with polypropylene mesh. Sequential laparoscopic evaluation of adhesion formation was performed in each animal. The percentage of mesh area involved was scored (0% to 100%). At various time intervals animals were sacrificed and samples were… CONTINUE READING
