Phospholipase-resistant phosphatidylcholine reduces intra-abdominal adhesions induced by bacterial peritonitis.

Abstract

The majority of intra-abdominal adhesions develop postoperatively or following peritonitis. We have previously shown that L-phosphatidylcholine reduces postoperative peritoneal adhesions in rats. In the present study, we examined whether adhesion formation after bacterial peritonitis is also reduced by L-phosphatidylcholine or by DL-alpha… (More)
