OBJECTIVE To compare the impact of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE; Gore-Tex Surgical Membrane; W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc., Flagstaff, AZ) and oxidized regenerated cellulose (Interceed TC7, Johnson & Johnson Medical, Inc., Arlington, TX) on the development of postsurgical adhesions. DESIGN A multicenter, nonblinded, randomized clinical trial. SETTING University medical centers. INTERVENTIONS Each barrier was allocated randomly to the left or right sidewall of every patient… CONTINUE READING
