Histology and fertility after microsurgical anastomosis of the rabbit fallopian tube with nylon and polyglactin sutures.


Polyglactin and nylon suture material were compared in microsurgical anastomosis of oviduct of rabbits with regard to the histologic reaction, adhesion formation, and nidation index. Thirty days after surgery, the tissue inflammatory response was very similar in both groups. At 90 days, polyglactin had been totally absorbed in 80% of the cases, and no… (More)
