Hyperbaric oxygen therapy and mechanical resistence of the colonics anastomosis in rats with peritonitis.


PURPOSE To analyze the effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) on the mechanical resistance of anastomosis performed in rats' distal colon presenting peritonitis induced by ligature and cecal punction using the Total Energy Rupture biomechanical test (ETR). METHODS It was used 45 rats divided into three groups of 15 animals each. In Control Group (CG… (More)
