BACKGROUND Carbon-dioxide (CO(2)) is used universally as an insufflation agent to create a laparoscopic pneumoperitoneum. In this study, we aimed to examine the electron and light microscopic alterations of the peritoneum after both cold-dry and heated-humidified CO(2) pneumoperitoneum. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty male Sprague-Dawley rats were used in this study. The rats were separated into three groups each comprising 10 rats. Group-I: (Control group): Gas insufflation was not applied to… CONTINUE READING
